Manhole covers are fascinating architectural features that are abundant in all corners of the world and yet often go unnoticed. They come in all sizes, shapes and forms, and are simultaneously unique and universal: While each country, city, town, village and even company puts their own touch on the design, certain features can still be found on manholes across the world. Furthermore, their simple and pragmatic designs, which contain information about their location and/or purpose, act as stand-alone logos for, well, themselves. In the spirit of visualizing this observation, this series recreates manhole covers into simplified, digitized icons.
