constraints and processes - can we open up new and undefined directions for exploration? if 'h' is a chair, then what do
the other 25 characters look like?' -andrew byrom
british born, california based designer andrew byrom has just sent us images and a video of his recent TEDx presentation
at UCLA (university of california, los angeles), entitled 'if h is a chair'. byrom explained his experimental approach to
typeface design and his experiences collaborating with others.
he also unveiled typographic furniture, an installation of tables and chairs outside the venue that appeared 'live' on screen
at the end of the talk. being on the same level as the tables, they seemed like normal furniture, but viewing them from above,
the audience surprisingly recognized the typography, displaying the name of the university. images of the installation will be
used for the upcoming UCLA extension catalog cover.
