Equipment attempts to break the notion that luxury means larger kitchen spaces with ever bigger appliances. Measuring 2.3m high by 1.6m wide, Equipment appears as an oversized fridge-freezer yet it contains a small, compact kitchen. A purposefully straightforward, precise and contained appliance in and of itself, conceived as a single product rather than the agglomeration of several appliances.
A former printing factory originally built in 1910, The Printing House in New York’s Far West Village is an iconic landmark of the area’s industrial past. First converted to condominiums in the 1980s, the building has relaunched this year with a new renovation that transforms many of its units into luxury loft-style residences. Pentagram’s Luke Hayman and team have created a brand identity and marketing campaign for The Printing House that plays off its origins to position it as a chic, contemporary place to live in one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods. Pentagram partner Emily Oberman collaborated with the team on messaging, writing and creative direction for the advertising. The designers worked closely on the project with Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group and the building’s developer, Myles J. Horn, who specializes in renovating and repositioning existing properties. The new conversion reconfigures 104 of the building’s 184 existing condominiums into 60 larger residences designed by the award-winning architectural firm workshop/apd, with a private mews designed by Gunn Landscape Architecture. Taking its cues from the renovation, the branding highlights The Printing House as, in the words of the campaign tagline, “A Revolution in Industrial Luxury.” by Pentagram
Nacion Real estate branding
"Nacion is a multi-purpose real-estate development project located in Monterrey, Mexico. With space for apartment homes, offices and stores, Nacion aims to be the ultimate all-in-one community for its residents. Our branding proposal takes that feeling of community and elevates it, creating a tactile sense of belonging, a nationalist pride. We took visual elements and symbols from flags and official governmental papers, such as passports and seals, and simplified and remixed them with bright, fun colors to create a modern look. With this project, we designed with the mentality of creating the identity of a brand new country." by Anagrama
