Paperlux for Novum Magazine


Inspired by the work of American theorist Richard Buckminster Fuller, graphic design journal Novum’s November issue has a colourful geodesic cover that can be manipulated into a variety of 3D forms.

The punch-cut cover, designed by German studio Paperlux, incorporates a triangular geometric grid and multicoloured pattern. The punch cuts allow for the triangular arrangement to be folded, following the principles of Buckminster Fuller’s lattice shell structures.
