To gather inspiration for the cover motif of this issue, Janina Engel delved into the world of bars and put down her observations on paper, in the form of charming doodles. In our novum+ theme on »bars & drinks« we serve up some wonderful interior design concepts and visual identities to raise the spirits. Whether it´s a pub in Munich, a stylish bar in Sydney, a devilish vermouth from Mallorca or a premium sake from Japan, the projects in our novum+ showcase the spectrum of design in hospitality and drinks. Good design, precise communication and a promise of a good time – what can be better than that?
In the showroom of this issue, we present the elegant appearances of Cansu Merdamert from London, as well as the colorful and powerful designs by Valeria Crociata from Italy. At Spine Studio in Copenhagen, contemporary book design is redefined and in the small Hungarian studio Nur you design with passion for customers all over the world. Last but not least, Ark Visual gives you a taste of what Israeli design currently has to offer – as always, there is a lot to discover.
