Help Save An Icon Of Design History

Completed in 1966 and installed in the cafeteria of the CBS building, the Gastrotypographicalassemblage wall of type was created by legendary designers Lou Dorfsman and Herb Lubalin. The wall remained in the CBS cafeteria for over 20 years until it was removed in the 80’s and left to rot somewhere. It might have been lost forever if it weren’t for Nick Fasciano and The Center for Design Study, who are now restoring it to its original form.

Help with the restoration by sending your donations to The Center for Design Study and save an important piece of design history. I’m going to make a donation, I have to be a part of this. I wish there was a list of all the typefaces used on the wall. That would be sweet.
