Japanese designer Taku Oomura runs an intriguing side project he calls trial and error. Inspired by their shapes and forms, Oomura transforms company logos we see every day, into usable items by imagining them in 3D. He then uses a 3D-printer to create miniature prototypes and before you know it, Adobe’s logo is a clothes hanger and the Playstation logo is a bookend.
Oomura runs a successful design office in Japan. We even carry his iconic ripple vase in our shop. But in his free time he keeps himself busy with an ingenious side project to reimagine company logos in three-dimensional form and assign them a particular function.
Some of these are really brilliant and need to be turned into actual products. They could work great as corporate merchandise. (thanks for the tip Duncan)
