These laserengraved city maps turn Urban Planning into an Artform

first_imgMost people hang vintage nautical maps on their wall, for their cartographic artistry. Maps from different times and eras had different design styles, used different paints and pigments on a variety of materials, even contained different information, and were a wonderfully classic way to add a touch of antiquity to your space. The problem is that people don’t view modern maps the same way, but there is beauty in civic planning. Modern cities are designed to suit urban life, but even in the chaos of skyscrapers, apartment complexes, roads, highways, bridges, bylanes, intersections, and ghettos, there’s artistic beauty just waiting to be uncovered.City Wood is a more contemporary take on vintage atlas artwork. It takes modern cities and neighborhoods and turns their urban landscape into laser-cut artwork, allowing you to observe and admire your city like never before! Taking topographical details and turning them into vectorized art, City Wood uses laser engraving to carve your city’s map onto a wooden ply, which is then sandpaper-finished by hand and layered against a wooden backdrop to give you a remarkably precise replica of your favorite city or neighborhood in top view, complete with all the roadways in relief, and all the buildings etched out. Water-bodies like lakes and rivers are given further depth, and contrasted with a different selection of wood, creating a piece of art that combines your love for a city or a neighborhood with the decorative appeal of a wall-hung sculpture!A rather innovative take on wall-art, the A’ Design Gold Award-winning City Wood’s laser-engraved city maps are great for preserving memories of a city, town or district that is special to you, be it where you were born, where you grew up, or even a favorite holiday destination!Designer: Hubert RoguskiClick Here to Buy Now: $169.15 $199 (15% off).
