Retirement Facitlity Hottingen Signage

The Swiss just do it better. One thing I have been looking at a lot and is becoming a thread of sorts here on campsite is the idea of reinventing or re-envisioning designed objects, which have become pedestrian or banal. This atypical wayfinding system designed by Tina Stäheli–Shinohara illustrates this perfectly. It falls somewhere between constructivist art and signage, and thus changes how we engage and use it. Equal parts art and information in my opinion would allow the user to be more connected to the information on the sign and be able to understand and apply that information more easily. I would love to hear other people’s thoughts on this so please feel free to leave a comment.

    My compliments to the designer of this wayfinding signage. I really like the apparent simplicity combined with the uniqueness of the design.
