    What the Font?

    One Word at A Time is a classic improv theatre exercise:
    in a circle, a story is started, with each person in turn adding one word.

    Join us and dress up as a human letter as part of a typographic performance;
    form words with other visitors and watch as a story unfolds through the evening.
    Each word will be photographed so that you can decide what word to contribute next, and you can follow the story live on my twitter account @amndne.
    See/Read you there!

  5. Coffee & Friends

    amandine_alessandra_fmo

    Coffee & Friends is a plain white bistrot tablecloth that reveals its pattern as coffee or tea is spilled on it: designed after the circle stains left by coffee cups, hundred of tiny smiling round faces appear on the fabric, sympathising with the clumsy guest.

    Coffee & Friends was specifically designed for DesignMarketo, to be featured during London Design Week in their FoodMarketo shop/café, a joint project with Apartamento magazine. Handprinted in London with the invaluable help of All Cats Are Grey.
