Design diversity With June being our special 40 Under 40 2015 results issue — congratulations to all our young winners, by the way — we’ve also cast our net wide to look at a diverse range of design. On page 105, five of the world’s top architects and designers interpret the art of the shoe for United Nude, while Gerrie Lim rounds up some of the most innovative artwork in wine bottle labels in the New World on page 110. One of the more prevalent developments of the last decade has been design diffusion lines from major fashion houses: on page 98, we look at how Giorgio Armani, Eley Kishimoto, Diesel and Christian Lacroix have moved beyond apparel into homeware and interiors, for a start. This is also an exciting time for retail interior design, and Benoy’s global director Trevor Vivian shares his thoughts on the intricacies and evolution of the sector. FINAL CALL!
