Design and design graphic of permanent signage (Building Eiffel)

Architect and Client  OMA – Rem Koolhaas

Polygraphik has been comissioned to design a signage system for building A in the university campus from CentraleSupélec School. We designed the monospace typographic character « Central » in order to install an alphanumeric universal tracking system. This allows easy shifting for the students, giving all the informations needed, without saturating the space with informations. Orientation diagrams by building and by floor are replacing the directionnals. They allow to know where we are and how to reach the requested service or laboratory.
