Live Small

Handmade brief

This typographic piece was constructed to accompany an article on Japanese micro housing — how people in Tokyo are increasingly living in tinier and tinier box-like spaces. 

Japanese newspaper was laminated together to make it stronger to construct the little boxes whilst fluorescent orange paper was used to line some of the boxes to create the typography. 

Laser cut miniature wood doors, people and other domestic elements were added to give a sense of scale.
