    To mark its 125th anniversary, German printed floor-covering manufacturer Vorwerk asked Ulf Moritz to create of a commemorative book. He approached us to collaborate with him in designing the book. The result, Zeit/Time Raum/Space, was published in limited German/English and German/French editions for Vorwerk’s customers and business associates.

    In designing the book, we were given the freedom to play with the theme of time and space. We used Adrien Frutiger’s Univers (the Vorwerk identity typeface) in combination with LL Simple (designed by Norm). We worked with printer robstolk® and chose to use different paper for each chapter. In combination with special printing techniques like high-gloss spot UV and braille embossing. On the front of the cover we used a lenticular foil to print the jubilee design that Tord Boontje made for Vorwerk and the words ‘Zeit/Time, Raum/Space’.
