Wall map diary
PinCity is a city wall map printed on a flexible felt panel. The imagery of the city reveals the energy of today’s cities; the graphics results make the maps ideal to display at home or in the office. The tactile characteristics of felt transform the static nature of a map – a simple object to be looked at – into something new with which users can interact.
The package includes a set of 15 special pins to use with the map. Pins, notes, drawings, photos can be attached to the maps to create your personal travel log.

The earliest need to set places on a map was linked to travel: it was a reminder of the succession of stops, the outline of a journey. It was thus linear in form, and could only be made using a long scroll.
