Grafik180: CityArt

Designers Lian Ng and Jean Orlebeke created this limited edition series of art inspired by the architecture of cities around the world. Airport codes were used to distinguish and label the locales, to create a sense of place and act as a "beacon of destination." We like the London print (LHR, pictured), but there are plenty more places to choose from on the Publique Living site.
