The other cover portrays JACOB FELLÄNDER, whose art installations blur the lines between photography, fashion, music, and virtual and augmented reality. For one year, we’ve followed Jacob in quest to create his biggest work yet.

The issue features two major specials. One is about the innovations that are changing our everyday life: nano textiles, solar panels, air purifiers, meditation booths, membership-based clothing brands, among much more.

The other focuses on the exponential transformation in mobility, with everything from electric airplanes and self-driving trucks, to hyperloops, and autonomous ferries.  

Also: interviews with Susanne Najafi, Emma Ridderstad, Robin Douglas Westling, Sofie Allert, Jacob Mühlrad, Alexander Wessely, among many others.
