Wallpaper*, the international design, fashion and lifestyle title, today reveals its Reigning in Russia issue – the final edition in its four-year project exploring the culture and creativity in the BRIC nations.
Setting up pop-up offices in St Petersburg and Moscow, and transferring the majority of
its editorial team, Wallpaper* continues its tradition of absorbing the country’s ways of living and working.
From art, architecture, design, and food to fashion, interiors media and travel, Reigning in Russia explores the creative energy coursing through the country. The edition also includes a BRIC nation review, revisiting the architecture, design and hotel scenes of Brazil, India and China.
Wallpaper* began its BRIC nation journey in 2009, setting up shop in Shanghai and Beijing to produce the award-winning Made in China issue. Next up was São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro for Born in Brazil, one of Wallpaper’s biggest-selling issues. Last year it was Mumbai and Delhi for Reborn in India.
Wallpaper* editor-in-chief Tony Chambers says: “Four epic journeys, four epic issues, we’ve shown what makes these countries tick. We now have a BRIC-shaped hole to fill, but you can bet whatever comes next will be equally exciting.”
Publishing director Gord Ray adds: “Our four-year plan and adventure is now complete. From picking up gongs to storming the newsstands and creating stunning pop up offices in between, we’ve covered the BRIC nations in a way only Wallpaper* can.”
