STEFAN GANDL “NEUBAU WELT”

THINGS

Neubau Welt” is an extensive encyclopedia of well over a thousand pictograms of everyday objects and obsessions large and small. They were created by designer Stefan Gandl and his Newbau team.

Stefan Gandl’s previous book “DSOS1” was also published by Die Gestalten Verlag and has since become a collectors’ item. SHIFT also featured an interview with him as a member of DesignersShock.

All of the objects shown in the book can also be found as Adobe Illustrator files in an included CD. For the price of the book, readers also buy the right to use the exclusive graphics and Newbau typefaces in their own work. Reminiscent of a digital Letraset, “Newbau Welt” contains everything any designer could possibly need but couldn’t find on Google. Unlike ClipArt, the smorgasbord of objects can be enlarged indefinitely. This also makes them extremely useful for architects and other creatives who can integrate them into their presentations and visual models.
