Typographic Furniture

Maria Kalomenidou - Tuesday, January 22, 2013

"In typography we deal with questions of readability and artistic expression.  the same, often opposed aspects are much more obvious in furniture design.  our ass tells us which type of chair feels comfortable and our eyes what looks exciting. each student build one letter of the alphabet as a more or less functional piece of furniture or household item. Beside the exploration of letter shapes it was important to explore the college workshops and different production processes. all too often typography is reduced to the screen and printed paper. the course project was followed by a small exhibition of the complete furniture alphabet in a düsseldorf gallery."

 -- Holger Jacobs, communications design teacher at the University of Applied Science in Düsseldorf
