With this Wallpaper Magazine October 2020 issue, the magazine announces, Alice Rawsthorn and Paola Antonelli as its Guest Editors for 2020.
Individually Alice and Paola have shaped contemporary design, Alice being a highly influential critic and author of Design as an Attitude and Hello World: Where Design Meets Life, and Paola a senior curator of MoMA, creator of ‘Broken Nature’ at the XXII Triennale di Milano – one of the most important exhibitions of recent times – and winner of the London Design Medal at this year’s LDF. Together, they founded Design Emergency.
Also in this issue, photographer Hannah Starkey shoots a 17-page portfolio of London in lockdown, and a deep dive into American Hardwood and Benchmark’s Connected, a project that invites international talents to design from a distance. Further highlights include Michael Anastassiades’ furniture debut for Molteni & C, Tavares Strachan’s rediscovery of a forgotten polar explorer, Miska Miller-Lovegrove’s transformation of a 16th-century Polish merchant’s house, and Deyan Sudjic’s account of Chilean design studio GT2P’s affair with lava.
