Surely, using typography in interior design was done before. But attempting it on such a literate level deserves a ‘high five’ just for sheer boldness. German designer Marc Lauckhardt created a furniture collection that not only resembles type, it seems to be constructed out of big three-dimensional letters. Surprisingly, this made for fairly believable and functional pieces, which proved once again that a well-balanced typeface can do and be anything…

Pleasure, Marc. Brilliant collection!

Thank you! Im just really busy and am not getting at all time to update or work on anything. Im glad so many people like it. Its being judged right now for the IF Design Award. Since its coming on so well im actually thinking about producing a whole set.

I think it’s a wonderful idea! You don’t have to be a typography geek to love these pieces, they are so universal and clever. Good luck with the award. Will keep fingers crossed for you.

Thanks, it seemed plausible. Integrate Typography into our daily life. What better way to do this then to create something thats so normal and necessary but also unique? ;)
We will see where my work stops next on its Journey, but its gone pretty far already. I will let you know if it wins 17th January.
