Formica® Laminate is one of the most ubiquitous materials in the world, found on millions of surfaces in homes, businesses, schools, restaurants, hotels and virtually every other kind of interior. (Chances are you are sitting at a desk, table or counter topped with it right now.) This year Formica celebrates its 100th anniversary with a special campaign designed by Pentagram’s Michael Bierut, Abbott Miller and Daniel Weil that pays homage to the remarkable brand and its century of innovation, design and cultural impact.
Earlier this year Formica introduced the new Anniversary Collection of laminates and Formica Forever, the definitive history of the brand, both designed by Abbott Miller. Now the celebration continues with a special anniversary clock created by Daniel Weil and a centennial identity and print campaign developed by Michael Bierut.

In her map paintings, Pentagram’s Paula Scher creates large-scale, obsessively detailed, typographically opinionated charts of cities, countries and regions around the world. Now you can take the maps with you in a new series of Mini Journals from Princeton Architectural Press. Pocket sized and perfect for use as diaries or sketchbooks, the journals come in a pack of three and feature covers with Scher’s New York, London and Paris maps. Inside, the pages are gridded (New York), lined (London), and blank (Paris), and the back cover of each notebook doubles as a pocket.
