We have been re-defining wall map design since 2003. Combining a modern aesthetic with age-old printing processes each of our maps is made to the highest quality, celebrating the beauty in map data.
Rejuvenating an age-old craft.
We’re fanatical about creating maps that are as stylish as they are useful. In 2003, a functional map with a stylistic edge just didn’t exist, so the challenge was set.
On its release, the Future map made a bold statement with vibrant colours and equal-area projection, showing the countries in their correct proportions. Using the traditional lithographic process, a plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, creating a stunning print that brings out the beauty in the data. It was named a ‘design classic’ by Simon Alderson of tastemaking design store twentytwentyone.
We have since gone on to develop many other maps that you can now see and purchase on our website. All utilising to stunning effect the brand’s signature bold colours, metallic seas and glossy landmasses.
In 2013 the New York City Map won an award from the British Cartographic Society for the intense data crunching and painstaking design work that went into mapping the buildings, streets, cycle routes and transport networks of the five boroughs.
Our maps have gone on to sell in some of the most innovative interior and product design stores throughout the World. Twentytwentyone, Moss, Vincon, Paul Smith, Heals & The Conran Store to name a few.
With new maps on the horizon, The Future Mapping Company is firmly establishing itself as a design pioneer and an innovator in the mapping industry.
