Inspired by children’s alphabet blocks and Bruno Munari, Providence-based designers John Caserta and Jeremy Mickel of The Design Office created these artful Letterboxes which can be assembled into letters, numbers, or geometric shapes. We’d love to fill the 4-inch recycled cardboard boxes with all of our bits and bobs and transform the clutter into custom sculpture.
For those needing guidance, there is an entire font based on the boxes (including lowercase characters and punctuation!), which is free to download from The Design Office website. The Letterboxes are currently only a prototype, but anyone in the Providence area can play with a set on loan to Kreatelier at 804 Hope Street and we hope they’ll be available for purchase soon.
