August issue, a continuation of Wallpaper's ongoing dialogue in how to design for a better world. What is often considered good design doesn’t always follow Dieter Rams’ commandments. But wouldn’t the world be better if it always just did?

Following the launch of Wallpaper* Re-Made in August 2020, they provide an update on the first generation of Re-Made projects currently in development. The inspiration for Re-Made is to bring together forward-thinking designers, makers, architects and engineers, as a catalyst for innovative and environmentally conscious work of the highest calibre. 

Elsewhere in the issue, they visit landscape designer extraordinaire Piet Oudolf's latest creation for Vitra, an immersive garden for all seasons in Weil am Rhein. We also feature the latest developments in sustainable architecture across Brussels, Ho Chi Minh City and Medellin, and journey to the Norwegian forest with BIG and Vestre to witness the construction of what they promise will be the world’s most sustainable furniture factory.

And finally, a special thank you to Tom Hingston, who, fresh from designing new visual identities for Serpentine Galleries and the ‘Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser’ exhibition at the V&A, has created our newsstand cover. 

This issue highlights the groundswell of ideas and creativity that is going on around the world, and I hope you feel inspired to join in the conversation.
