German design studio Paperlux designed an astounding series of bendable magazine covers for the November issue of the Novum magazine–small, colorful triangles are punch cut from the cover, so that you can bend, fold, and ripple along the geometric lines.
The color schemes alone (there are 6 versions of the same cover!) are astoundingly complex and nuanced, but the crowing achievement here is really making a print publication that invites people to interact with it, with the playful colors, shapes, and textures.
From Paperlux on Behance:
In 48,000 passes and with 140 extremely detailed die cuts per magazine, we created six differently coloured versions of the cover, without exposing the plates again each time. The result is a metamorphosis of paper, inspired by the one and only Richard Buckminster Fuller.
This is going to be an issue that people will definitely be keeping on their coffee tables or in their inspiration folders– the triangles are so simple and minimalistic, while the print execution is just over the top (and really, that’s just a great design combo!).
