Character: Recycled Letters

Posted on May 6, 2009 Under Art


As you know, we’re all about recycling. But, Character, a Finnish design company is all about recycling in an altogether different sort of way. When a store decides to toss their neon signage, Character comes along, snags them, takes them apart, then rebuilds them into their own design creations that are complete with LED lights. The new letters and numbers – which feature a variety of colors and typefaces – can be used inside or outdoors and seem especially perfect for anyone obsessed with typography who finds the letter mugs at Anthropologie to be too mundane. We can only hope they start to work with neon images next.

At the moment, you can only purchase these in person in Helsinki, but a range of letters are available on their website for around 300 Euros. So much fun to imagine the uses for these!
