Wallpaper* Guest Editors Issue

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Magazine & Newspaper Design / Entire Magazines / 2009

For the October issue of Wallpaper* we entrusted three sections of the magazine to three of the world’s leading figures in art, architecture and design: Louise Bourgeois, Zaha Hadid and Rei Kawakubo. Realising their vision in the pages of a magazine was an enormous challenge. Bourgeois collaborated with fellow artists and friends Helmut Lang, Roni Horn and Peter Zumthor. Her section also included a specially commissioned bound-in portrait by Tracey Emin. Hadid literally carved a sculptural representation of a new work into the pages of Wallpaper*. Her vision: Carving, layering, the void, space: it needs a big hole in the magazine. And Kawakubo's visual feast using graphics, photography and art summons up COMME des Garçons maverick spirit.
