Kiku Obata & Company

dlinexsign Ltd worked closely with Kiku Obata & Company, a design consultancy specialising in Identity, editorial and environmental design to create some truly unique cubes. Commemorating Scientific patents for Base4 Innovation.

Base4 Innovation is a Cambridge-based research and development company working to solve some of the most difficult problems in biotechnology – with a particular focus on DNA sequencing.

Kiku Obata & Company were asked to design a more contemporary take on the more traditional brass plaque used to commemorate new scientific patents.

The cubes are made from solid walnut with an inlaid brass numeral to the top. Ultra high resolution direct digital print is applied to four sides of the cubes, with a matte lacquer applied to protect both the natural finish of the walnut and the text.
