For its most ambitious issue to date, Wallpaper* magazine has brought together and briefed some of the world’s leading designers, craftsmen and manufacturers to produce unique furniture, fittings, foodstuffs, fashion... and the Laser.
One of the projects Wallpaper* wanted in this issue was a boat, but it had to be a design classic. They called on ocean-loving designer and regular Wallpaper* contributor Marian Bantjes to produce plans for a graphically enhanced Laser, and she delivered a stunning design that references the cubist patterns of the First and Second World War ‘dazzle’ naval camouflage. A limited edition of 12 of these works of art are available to order from LaserPerformance Europe.
“We’re thrilled that the Laser was selected for this project. It’s a testament to the Laser’s timeless design and its position as one of the world’s most popular sailboats”, commented Chip Wilkerson, VP Marketing at LaserPerformance.
Marian Bantjes is the founder of Vancouver graphic design company Digitopolis, Marian Bantjes left the firm in 2003 to concentrate on working with custom type, playful typography-based illustrations and ornamentation. More of her work can be found at www.bantjes.com.
