I may have expressed my excitement about this before, but these laser engraved skateboards by designer Piotr Woronkowicz have an even greater story to tell, and it’s all to do with Utopia, architecture and skateboards of course!
To kick things off, the three decks you see on top there are numbered according to the building and architect they represent:
(1) Paul Rudolph,
(2) Mies Van Der Rohe
(3) Frank Lloyd Wright
Below is a quick overview of each building as seen on the deck, then I’ll explain to you just HOW awesome the etchings actually are…
Welcome back, and now that you’ve taken the time to read the details and tiny writing above, I’ll tell you why it’s seriously caught my attention…
You see the numbers on the board? The “1” the “2” the “3”? Well each of the three decks were etched using only the numbers that were assigned to them! See the “2′” in the call out example below:
Well, if you’re into architecture, art or skating…maybe there’s something here that you can appreciate. If you want to find out a little more you could always check out the YouTube video of Piotr chatting about the boards here or read about it on numerous design blogs.
Hope you enjoyed, and if you didn’t, maybe you’ll enjoy what the gallery who exhibits the piece does with their dog and a store front window 😉
