Material Board 02: Chemically Etched Stainless Steel by Alexander Taylor

MB2 Domino

We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with product designer Alexander Taylor, best known for his iconic Fold lights and Antler coat hooks, as well as his ongoing work with the footwear design team at German sportswear giant adidas, to produce the second in our ongoing series of Material Boards.

Having selected stainless steel as his base material, Alexander chose to chemically etch the front of the A5 sheet to produce an intricate grid of dots; a theme recalled in the design of the outer packaging and, of course, in the freestanding, three-dimensional domino that can be formed by carefully removing and folding the board’s inner section.

The board’s reverse is screen printed with a striking orange that adds a pop of colour to the otherwise industrial look and feel of Alexander’s typically witty design.
