Been a little while since my last post (must post more often, must post more often!). Occasionally I stumble across something so perfect for this blog that it snaps me back into 'post motivation' mode. So here it is.
Thanks to the always "on it" lostateminor for the tip. These typographic chairs from Roeland Otten are amazingly realized. At first I doubted they were real, assuming these were 3D renderings, but they actually ARE real, lacquered wood prototypes. Some of the letters are more ingenious than others (see the "r" and "f), but as a complete set, they are really quite impressive. Otten describes himself as "working with a conceptual approach in different fields of art and design, from graphic design to new media and video, from product design to art in public space and events".
I want an "r"!
