Wallpaper* Design Awards issue celebrates the very best in design over the past 12 months. The panel for the Judges’ Awards included multimedia artist and impresario Doug Aitken, filmmaker and interior designer Luca Guadagnino, London Design Medal laureate Ilse Crawford, architect Sou Fujimoto, culinary evangelist Jon Gray of Ghetto Gastro, and fashion designer Simone Rocha.
The issue features transparent audio equipment that feels indistinguishable from magic; a jaw-dropping mitten watch by Cartier, 3D-printed in rose gold and meticulously set with nearly 1,600 diamonds; LG’s next-level face mask, incorporating Hepa filters and a voice amplification system; Anne Boysen’s ‘Moonsetter’ lamp for Louis Poulsen, a kinetic design with a celestial glow; Kengo Kuma’s IWA sake brewery in Japan, with a remarkable roof profile; Hussein Chalayan’s tableware for Karaca, which stacks into sculptural compositions; and Porky Hefer’s marine monsters, sounding the alarm for the burgeoning problem of ocean waste. The issue also has a round up the best looks from the S/S 2022 shows, a handsome drinks cabinet and top tipples for a dream drinking den, fantastic furniture upcycled from offcut marble and wood, metallic marvels, and sensational sculpted forms.
