From the Colt handgun to the LEGO figure, plenty of patents have changed the course of culture and the world at large, and Fancy Patents celebrates those monumental legal documents. The London-based company sells fine prints of US patent sheets, bringing patents out of the office and into the home as stately pieces of decor for one's walls.
Fancy Patents offers prints of inventions from industries as diverse as firearms and beauty products. It includes some famous brand name products, like LEGO figures, the original Apple Macintosh, and the iconic Herman Miller Aeron desk chair. However, it also includes some more generic designs that one might be surprised to learn have patents on them. These include things like the typewriter, the Champagne cork, and the lipstick case.
