Star Cigarettes (Berlin Wall)
>Star Cigarettes (Berlin Wall) Star Cigarettes, a division of Philip Morris, sold a limited edition pack in Europe in the early '90s that celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall (9 November 1989). The pack was designed by Niall Monro (between November 1989 and April 1990). At that time Monro worked for The Raymond Loewy Group who were retained by Philip Morris. Shown on the package is a piece of graffiti–covered slab being removed from the wall. Its bubbly letters read 'Star'. Conceptual artist Martin Kippenberger used this image to create wallpaper in 1991. (This work was exhibited at Luhring Augustine in June 2011 in New York).
