These fonts started out as a typographical experiment to see how the letters constructed with the Plaque Découpée Universelle would combine into words.
Multiple styles — see FRAGILE — were constructed: the original alphabet how F. A. David envisioned it, my “cleaned up” version, a more fascist version and a retro version. These different styles can be seen combined in Orale BBQ.
The stencil versions were commissioned by James Goggin for the signage system of Tutti a Tavola!, the opening event for the 2010 Milan Furniture Fair. This was a collaboration between Practise and David Kohn Architects.
