4D lettering concrete version made by Michael Roschach for LoSiento
Published on August 6, 2013
4D lettering concrete version made by Michael Roschach from Micromut for LoSiento Studio. This work is a version of 4D Typography that we published before.
The architect Michael Roschach has a concrete workshop in Barcelona, where he designs and produces. He takes care of your whole project, from design to production in a very flexible, open minded way and develops personal projects and projects from others, with the help of virtual 3D models and CNC milled prototypes. Apart from concrete he also works with wood, steel and polyurethane.
4D Type is the result of intersectioning, in an orthogonal way in space, two extrusions of the same character, which allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space. 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.
