    If the mug is to show scale, i hope that mug is huge; The standard notepad wont fit and if a pencil is to roll off the small surface, its not gonna be fun. Way to troublesome to work on.. looks good though, more artistic than functional.

    This is only really for artistic purposes. There is zero functionality to these and would be quite frustrating to try and use practically. I have turned typography into various pieces of furniture quite a few times myself and I knew straight away that the first thought I had of doing something this simple would never work. Although the photo of them all together in a huge room looks good and it would be quite nice in the Tate Modern, but other than that the designers really need to think a little more outside the box like I did to get really innovative practical typographic furniture designs.

  • I think it's a great concept, would look great for exhibition, promotions etc. Fair enough it's not very practical but not all things are anyway
