Design Underfoot – Manhole Covers of the World

via designboom.
If you’re a city dweller, you take the 100-odd-pound manholes scattered in the street for granted. New York’s standard issue manhole covers have stayed about the same for years. But in some design-conscious cities, a virtual arms race for the most attractive cast iron hole covers.

italian designers giulio iacchetti and matteo ragni have been working together with the montini foundry since 2006 and during this time they have designed drains and cast-iron manhole covers for public as well as private spaces. the design is almost totally focused on the surfacefinish of where the objective – despite the narrowness of the range – was to avoid an outcome which was merely graphic decoration.
