Wallpaper* today publishes its annual Design Awards issue.
The issue celebrates a year's worth of brave and beautiful designs, bright ideas, movements and creative shakes from around the world.
This year's awards include a roll call of Best Domestic Designs, Best Retreat, Best Spa, the best fashion collections of 2010, the year's most promising building sites as well as more unusual ticklers of the magazine's fancy; including Best Camping, Best-Lit Loos, Best Girls/Blouse, Best Turn-On, Best Toy and Best Cork Tease.
Wallpaper* is letting one award winner out of the bag early: Despite Wall Street's near meltdown, the City of the year is New York.
The February issue also includes a special 14-page section on this year's super charged judging panel who bang our biggest gongs, the highly prized Judges Awards, including Best New Restaurant, Best new Private House and Public Building, Furniture Designer of the Year and Life Enhancer of the Year.
The section includes unique portraits of our six-strong jury: Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar; LA's interior design queen Kelly Wearstler; the architect's architect, Steven Holl; LVMH's star designer, John Galliano; mogul on a mission, James Murdoch; and the artist and Double Club king Carsten Höller.
