Bompas & Parr “leads in flavour-based experience design, culinary research, architectural installations and contemporary food design”, and you might have seen their previous work go viral…
Grope Mountain, was originally launched in 2015 at the Museum of Sex (New York) as part of FUNLAND, “an interactive exhibition about the pleasures and perils of an eroticised fairground”. The project consists of a climbing wall where the traditional “rocks” are replaced with ones shaped like genitals, which in turn influenced the creation of ‘Grope Sans’, a naughty typeface created for Valentine’s Day.
Flo Fairweather (graphic designer at Bompas & Parr) said:
It’s surprisingly easy to turn most type forms into penises, vaginas and breasts. There are up to three variations on each letter, so an even representation of male and female parts can be achieved with every word. Every minor adjustment I made was laughter-inducing
I was struggling to find something to blog about for Valentines Day – I couldn’t find anything that particularly stood out. Well, this certainly did! I had briefly heard about Bompas & Parr’s ‘Grope Mountain’ project through social networks, but the rest of their portfolio is certainly equally as unique, bizarre but undoubtedly pushing creative boundaries.
