Artist Creates 4D Typography Handcrafted in Paper

Lo Siento Creates 4D Typography Handcrafted in Paper

We have all familiarized ourselves with the talented Barcelona-based design studio Lo Siento by now, through their typography and even installations. As you can see, their work covers a very wide array of areas. This project was self initiated for their promotion and I have to say is pretty well executed. They have managed to create a mesh of two letters, which results in three per piece that has the sculpted to be 3d, but taken to another level by mixing two letters with a middle letter, ultimately making these paper letters 4d as well. They mention that it is a project about the poetry of paper, and the letters once placed randomly together like above spell DNAMC, which we can safely assume means dynamic... or maybe that's just my interpretation. I mean, it is pretty dynamic typography if that is the case. What do you think?

Cool Hunting Rough Cut: LoSiento

Cool Hunting - LoSiento 7 Cool Hunting recently had the chance to visit the Barcelona based studio LoSiento and created this wonderful interview with the founder Borja Martínez. LoSiento specializes in 3D typography, packaging and product design. We are big fans of their work and wrote about their fantastic Paper lettering project for EMPO. The video gives you a nice look behind the scenes and into the thinking of the studio.

Paper lettering project for EMPO by Gerard Miró

Empo-Girard Miro-LoSiento
"EMPO is a psycho-osteopathy school and office. The project takes the study of the human body and its parts as a starting point. We decided to represent the organs and bone structure in a physical and volumetric form, using colored cardboard in the search of a certain school-nostalgia feeling. At the same time, we started studying the way to create an exclusive alphabet for the project: it should "lift" in random volumes to hold an organic reminiscence." - LoSiento
