Our highly appreciated reporter in Hamburg Rudolf from Urbanshit recently wrote about a project by graphic designer and illustrator Christoph Niemann, who’s currently living and working in Berlin. Niemann abstracted a sample of the New York’s subway map and turned it into a tile pattern. The result is a neat and coloful interior design for a small bathroom.
For years Niemann has been working successfully as an illustrator and graphic designer in New York City. He used to design covers for the The New York Times and is known for his distinctive and subtly humorous illustrations. Besides that he runs the Abstract City blog on the New York Times website.
