The artist collective behind Berlin-based Raubdruckerin (pirate printer) produces shirts and bags imprinted with public street fixtures such as manhole covers, vents, and utility grates. The overlooked geometric patterns and typographic forms of urban signage out of those utility covers are pretty retro and untie due to the “hand-made process”.
