Moscow metro map.
Russia’s powerhouse design firm Art. Lebedev Studio (of Optimus keyboard fame) recently unveiled a striking new map that at long last drags the Moscow Metro out of the Soviet era. The design, though not an official replacement, took nearly four years to complete. It costs 350 rubles (around $14) and comes in various sizes and levels of detail.
Studio founder Artemy Lebedev released the map publicly in hopes that it will be adopted as the official map, and told us via email that he thinks that could happen in less than five years.
