Obscure Design Typologies: Palindromic Objects


Double Ended Bath

This coming Friday will see a beautiful full blown palindromic moment. The 11th of November at 11 minutes and 11 seconds after 11 in the morning will be 11.11.11.11.11. To mark this meaningless numerical accident, I’ve put together a few what we might call palindromic objects – things which read the same left to right and right to left. Of course, if you have any suggestions to add to this obscure typological collection, please do let me know.

    Personally I think a few minutes earlier makes a better/more accurate palindrome. That being 11:02 and 11 seconds, making it:

    11:02:11am on 11/11/2011

    or

    11021111112011

    11.11.11.11.11 is not a very good example of a palindrome.
    You should have picked the 1st February 2010 = 01022010, it’s just got more class.

    Must be a pain in the arse being a palindrome.
