4D Type by Lo Siento Studio

View all 12 Photos

Bummed out that even the most hi-tech movies are (for now) bound to three dimensions? Take solace in Lo Siento Studio’s 4D typography and its careful, old-school production. Artists carve out, and interlock, two versions of a single letter—and the resulting form “allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.”  The intention is to make the appreciation of typography a more active process, necessitating the reader’s physical movement. The finished product is as multi-purpose as it is multi-dimensional: the letters are pictured hanging from the ceiling and used as legs of a coffee table. Cheers to an ancient art form made new.
