The 200th issue of the Wallpaper* magazine is now on newsstands. The November issue is a momentous double milestone for Wallpaper*. Not only is it the 200th print edition but it is also the 100th with editor-in-chief Tony Chambers in charge. And to mark the occasion Chambers has paid tribute to some of the friends and collaborators who have been there for Wallpaper* since issue one, amongst them Alice Rawsthorn, Michael Reynolds and Sir Paul Smith.
Also for this landmark issue, legendary French typographer Philippe Apeloig has designed a special cover and new typeface just for Wallpaper*.
"It's a remarkable double century for Wallpaper* and it's been fun foraging though the archive," commented Tony Chambers, editor-in-chief Wallpaper*. "Retracing our steps has reminded us how sharp our eye and sound our judgement has been. This issue proves we're sharper than ever."
Apple's Chief Design Officer Sir Jonathan Ive and designer, and new Apple recruit, Marc Newson have fought off strong competition to top Wallpaper's all-new, 16-page Power 200 table. In celebration of its 200th edition, the magazine has doubled down on last year's Power 100, adding new league tables for product-designing architects, market-leading management, interior designers and designers under 40 already rocking the Wallpaper* world. The most powerful designers have again been ranked according to market value, quality and quantity of output and reputational shift. This year though, the magazine has dug into the archive, retraced its expert truffling and reprinted debut appearances of future power listers. Look out for a very young and follicly unchallenged Ive, amongst many others.
