Coin Art

We’ve always been fans of street art, alternative media and that whole box of tricks. And this thing from Sagmeister Inc is about as good as it gets in the field…

This thing is actually made from 250,000 Euro 1-cent coins, and was actually constructed with help from the passing public.

The thing covers over 350sqm of a square in Amsterdam, and bears Sagmeister’s slogan, “Obsessions make my life worse and my work better”.  We love the design, and would love to see something similar over here… although you do get the feeling the Brits would just steal the money instead…

  1. I\’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..
