Alphabet Soup

I used to fish out the letters from my Campbell's Alphabet Soup.  I also designed alphabets while doodling and made letters appear 3-D. So it is no surprise I have been noting all the design posts about various ways letters are used in decor. My next theme will be just that and today I'll share some examples of letters used as furniture. This is a very dramatic use because it uses scale so effectively. We generally relate to letters in 12 point. Check out this ZZZZZ bedside table.

It is designed by Sisko Design

Change the font and italize it and you have a new piece of whimsical furniture. Matching chairs.  I am not so sure they would be comfortable.

Or Bold Helvetica with an internal glow....

Where is the Z?
