4D Typeface made of Paper

June 18th, 2012

Barcelona Studio Lo Siento built a 4D typeface out of paper shapes. This special typeface allows for the viewer to read from multiple angles. Via Newgrids.

An observer searching to enjoy a particular architecture, is forced to move around and through it. The change in perspective generates new spaces in which light acts in different ways. In this case, it is the typography who makes the effort of abandoning its two dimensions to approach the architectural sense. It does not resign with a third dimension; a fourth one is necessary to complete the reading possibilities. By hanging the typography, the reader is allowed to surround the characters in order to understand all their shapes.
