Friday Night Flicks: Story of AHP Six Typeface

AHP Six is a typeface in the same sense that a bunch of large glass beads is a frog for flower-arranging. From the New North Press website:

The blocks, named ‘AHP Six’, are a modular set that can be tessellated to create letterforms, borders, patterns or any variety of outcomes. Expertly laser-cut from maple by Thomas Mayo, the hexagonal blocks contain several different shapes and patterns making for a range of textures and effects. The project was commissioned for a David Chipperfield- and Karakusevic Carson-designed residential development near us in Hoxton and we are looking forward to using the blocks in the upcoming workshops with Shoreditch Park Primary School (as well as in our public classes and experimenting with it ourselves!)

This short video shows an example of the blocks in use.

 

 

Perhaps you will find some other hexagonal things this weekend.
