Says Tony Chambers, Wallpaper‘s Editor-in-Chief:
Known for his play on positive and negative space, usually in 2D, Bar entered a new dimension just for us. His cover designs are, in fact, room sets, painted in a three-dimensional studio space and integrating actual products from each of the territories. With his typical, though extraordinary, and witty visual brevity, he captured the identity of each territory using merely his paint brush and a few selected objects.
We are just now realizing that these are not literally 3D-faced wonders that will overcrowd newstands, but we doubt the full scope of the work will be fully absorbed anywhere but paper-in-hand—not even on your new iPad.
