PATRICIA SCHWOERER Photographer ‘I have always admired Hedi Slimane’s aesthetics,’ says Schwoerer, who, having shot campaigns for Dior Homme and Saint Laurent, felt a natural fit for our story on fashion brand Celine as it rolls out new flagship stores, spearheaded by its creative director Slimane (page 066). ‘The mix of sculptures and his furniture in the spaces is very impressive,’ says Schwoerer, who is currently working on a solo exhibition about Siberia’s Lake Baikal. PETER LANGER Photographer ‘It was a relaxed and jolly shoot on a few sunny days in Hackney,’ reflects Langer after turning his lens to our ‘lunch to go’ entertaining special (page 148). Shuttling between London, Paris and Berlin, Langer’s advertising client rap sheet includes the likes of Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Jil Sander, while his distinctive still-life work makes regular…

Tour de force Welcome to our June issue, where our newsstand cover feature is a cerebral, CMYK colour-defying shoot from Wallpaper* interiors stylist Maria Sobrino and photographer Tommaso Sartori. With all the colours created in camera, it’s unique, powerful and a joy to behold. Meanwhile, our limited-edition subscribers’ cover previews Isaac Julien’s Lina Bo Bardi – A Marvellous Entanglement, his multi-screen study of the visionary architect, ahead of its premiere at Victoria Miro London on 7 June. Having had the great pleasure of visiting Bo Bardi’s Casa de Vidro in São Paulo in 2010 when shooting our Brazil issue (W*135), it’s wonderful to be transported back there, if only on page. From Brazil to the Venice Art Biennale. We preview Carpenters Workshop Gallery’s ambitious show, ‘Dysfunctional’, which includes debut designs by Virgil Abloh…

Designers seem to be in safe mode, with many setting their sights on overtly protective eyewear. It’s not just lenses, but also frames, temples and nose bridges, which are there to shield and safeguard. This season’s sunglasses come in all sorts of protective guises. For heavy metal enthusiasts, sunglasses feature frames in graphic extruded metal, while others are hyperbolically oversized with retro flair. There’s an alpine élan behind visor-style frames, and a hard angular edge to shapes with severe sides. Whatever stranger things are out there, we’ve got a host of safeguarding options to serve, protect and pack a stylish punch. Hair: Yoshitaka Miyazaki using Bumble and Bumble. Make-up: Jinny Kim using Chanel Lumière et Contraste and Chanel L’eau Micellaire. Model: Huan Liu at Elite London…

Sleep is a growing category in the tech world. At this year’s CES in Las Vegas, one of the industry’s biggest trade fairs, the focus firmly shifted from purely analytical devices to curative technology, with a focus on head wearables. Two companies tackling sleep issues include Hupnos, which addresses night-time nose overtures with its Snoring mask, and Dreamlight, which offers light therapy and surround-sound audio sleep aids. here are a few more of our top picks to sleep on. ▪ STAGE PRESENCE when Barcelona-based architect Toni Gironés was tasked with improving the accessibility and visibility of Tarragona amphitheatre, built in the roman city of Tarraco (in north-east Spain) in the 2nd century, his response borrowed from the simple corrugated steel rods often used in construction sites to create an almost ethereal platform…

The question of what constitutes art rumbles on, but, in the meantime, designers seem to be making their own decisions as to what to put in a frame. responding to an ever-increasing desire to bring nature inside, nice-based designer Mauro Canfori has developed Teepots, a series of plant stands with in-built frames, to put our leafy protaganists centre stage. Cecilia Xinyu Zhang’s new hanging rail consists of frame-like bars that swing out from the wall and make a pretty picture of whatever you might hang there, while the ‘aki’ screens, a collaboration between Belgian designers Nathalie van der Massen and Hija studio, are designed as functional textile artworks contained in a walnut frame, all armoury to make interiors picture perfect.…

bodil blain shares coffee and creative small talk with…

BB: How do you take your coffee? JV: With milk and sugar, builder’s coffee, out of a glass mug. When the weather is good, I take a walk in my beautiful garden with my coffee. You work with your twin brother Joep. Is your creativity similar? I think that I’m the more confident creator whereas Joep is more of the explosive creator. He is ten times more creative than me at times. We raise each other up. As twins, we don’t have ‘me and me’ ego, we only have ‘us’ ego. How do you define design? Everything you surround yourself with must have attention value. I’d rather live in an empty room than live with things I don’t love. Your ‘Cinderella’ table is in the V&A. Is it your favourite piece? Actually, our bubble works are the…
