With the wonders of 3D printing at his disposal, Japanese designer Taku Oomura has transformed some of the world’s most iconic logos into everyday, usable items. A few examples include the Adobe and Nike Air Jordan logos, which have been respectively converted into miniature clothes hangers, and the Honda emblem, which has been turned into a bottle opener. While scoring one of these creations remains unlikely, they certainly provide for a few minutes of online entertainment.
Oomura already runs a successful design company and this recent project–dubbed ‘Trial and Error’–seems to be more of a creative whim than a full-blown pursuit. That said, his inventive approach has definitely garnered massive amounts of attention, so maybe this is the start of something substantial, presuming he can clear all those trademark hurdles. In the meantime, it’s fun to see familiar images taken to legitimately functional and inventive places. Check out the images below.
