Monocle publishes ten times a year and is a global look at current affairs, politics, design, travel, food & drink, style and more.
From the publishers:
Monocle’s third annual Design Awards honour the top 50 objects, places and designers that have popped onto our radar over the past year. Expect stunning buildings, cosy furniture and saké in cans. Elsewhere in Issue 163, we find out how Russians recruit spies (and why they need to), set up home at the world’s premier property fair and step out in spring fashion.
