Those with an artistic streak are better able to see things from a different angle, and the same applies to Japanese designer Yuri Suzuki who managed to conjure this rather delightful image of the London Underground Circuit Maps. The title of his artwork is pretty much self explanatory, where it will be on show to the public at the London Design Museum until January 13th next year. The whole idea of ‘thrift’ was part of Suzuki’s work, where he continues to look into communication systems in consumer electronics.

Through the clever and strategic positioning of a certain speaker, resistor and battery component throughout the entire map’s layout, Suzuki finally ended with the make-up of the London Underground. This also allows users to understand visually the complex networks which are more often than not associated with electricity, as well as how power is generated within a radio itself. Someone tell Yuri Suzuki to come up with circuit maps of major metropolitan cities around the world and start a collection of these, we are quite sure that plenty of people will be interested in them.
