favorite things . Modern Digits

Daily PONDspiration [for well-designed mathematics}… I’m inspired by the details this morning and California-based Heath Ceramics offers some great ones for the modern-loving home. Their new ceramic house number tiles feature the iconic typefaces of Richard Neutra (top) and Charles & Ray Eames — both architects and designers on the who’s who of the Modern Movement. I love the way the colors and the raised digits really showcase these classics and highlight the simple shapes of the numerals we see every day. Neutra and the Eames union created the lettering as details and signage for some of their built work. They have been exquisitely embraced and expanded in full typeface sets by House Industries, and now interpreted in ceramics by Heath. Inspiring shapes!
