Greenwich Locksmiths’ Facade

Greenwich Locksmiths occupies a small storefront just south of Commerce Street. And though it’s been in business since 1968, it really hasn’t changed all that much. But take a closer look at the building, as something had changed. The new facade was designed and installed entirely by owner Phil Mortillaro back in October.

Naveen Chandru’s En Origami

“If you’ve ever folded a paper crane, you’ll immediately recognize the inspiration behind this display font. Angled lines cut back and forth, giving characters the illusion that they are made from thin ribbons of paper. Mountain and Valley folds reverse course to complete M’s, N’s, and W’s. Other letters make use of a different illusion: layering one form over another to create a doubling-up effect found in paper chains made of tightly folded gum wrappers.”
