This is the project brief of this work
Typesphere consists of two main parts: a 3D-printed sphere and a container.
The sphere draws inspiration from the carved eggs of artist Piotr Brockenheim(1). Their delicate form and care for craft inspired the visual aspirations of the sphere. To achieve this aesthetic, a paragraph of type about the Swiss typographic style was wrapped in a spiral and attached to a spherical form. Once 3D printed, the form looked delicate yet was rigid and sturdy.
The packaging design draws its inspiration from traditional Japanese egg containers (2). The forms simply wrap the egg while simultaneously revealing the form. Marrying this with the geometric heritage of the Swiss typographic style, the package wraps in one line around the sphere. The series of alternating triangles provides a flat base for the ball to rest on and tilt one face slightly upwards.
Information about the content of the 3D-printed sphere covers the packaging. The typography of the form follows its unexpected rhythm to amplify the uniqueness of the shape and design.
Self-initiated projects are intended to keep up with critical engagement in the field. There may be a brief, may not be.
