About this project
See your favorite city in a new light every day
You love city trips? You love to recall your tours? …and you love design?
Then have a look at my unique city map posters with a mirror effect. Never seen before. Unique by reflecting the sunshine in your surrounded space.
URBNreflections is a new way to see urban city structures. Printed with matt varnish and white color, on a special silver mounted cardboard, you can see the streets and places in a reflection.
A cool and elegant mix of the urban structures of major cities across the globe, designed to be a shimmering work of art, creating various visual effects on its glossy silvery surface depending on your position when facing it.
….an ideal world tour! Mapping is very in indeed and I honk you guys have found an unexpected language to picture it. Bravo!

Each print has a minimalistic design using the international three digit flight code of each city and based on optimized Open Street Map information. Built-up areas are shown in a matt varnish and water surfaces are shown in a shade of white.
The city scape will be printed in a matt varnish and a shade of white on special cardboard (329 gsm) mounted on a silver aluminium foil with the aid of a digital screen printing UV machine.
The thickness of the layers of the printing ink becomes tangible to the touch by standing in relief on the cardboard. With the light being refracted off the matt varnish, a thousand dazzling effects soon have the person looking at it mesmerized.
Each poster from size L and XL will be shipped in a cardboard tube which will sit inside a second outer cardboard box to provide extra protection. Furthermore each poster will be especially protected by placing a glassine sheet on its printed side before rolling it up.ABOUT ME
Hi, I am Christoph and I enjoy exploring cities. When I am back at home sitting at my kitchen table, my mind keeps wandering back to all the exciting places I have been to. But some day I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great to have a visual memento of my travels. And that's how I came up with URBN reflections.
I would like to extend my very special thanks to the people who gave their time and thought to help me lift this project off the ground. They include:
Jens Anders, George Grant, Anysha Stiller, Tarek Hafiz, Axel Kienast, Georg Gartner, Detlef Reiners / 123map.de, OSM OpenStreetMaps
Let the urban joy begin !

Risks and challenges
The printing process has been checked thoroughly and merely the artwork needs to be completed.
The aim of my project is to fund a sufficient print run of URBN reflections posters. Prices have been set with this in mind. However, delays may occur in the worldwide shipping of the posters, as the size of the printing orders might vary depending on the final degree of acceptance.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
