This week's inspiration is anything but penniless. An installation on the floor made with coins for a valuable result.

Typographer and Austrian designer, Stefan Sagmeister is one of the most promising creator of his generation. Specially known for his creations disc visuals for artists such as David Byrne or the Rolling Stones, he always keep a touch of his own personality in his works. 


The installation " Obsessions Make My Life Worse and My Work Better " was created out of bronze coins with 3 different tints (1, 2 and 5 euro cents) displayed in a special order on the ground. Selected designers as well as hundreds of volunteers worked for over a week to achieve to this result. An amazing typographic work which sadly did not last, since following theft attempts of bits of the piece, the police decided to dismantle the installation out of safety precautions.
