Spinning ABC

By spinning the letters from the alphabet, Esther Ermers has developed the first 3-dimensional alphabet. The 26 letters of our alphabet form the basis for 26 stools. This is design in its ultimate form I believe! Such a fascinating idea. Esther Ermers is a 2005 graduate from the Design Academy in Eindhoven. She has also written a book called “vormentaal”.


The shapes of the stools are telling us a story about the magic of learning to write and creating the 26 typefaces of the alphabet. As we will be using less and less paper we will need these three dimensional letters. Until then we can just sit and relax on these “letters”. Esther would love to see her stools in spaces such libraries and bookstores. Hopefully the stools will soon be available for us, so I can buy my “i” to sit on.
