More Information
  • The O-X-O letters, each ten feet tall, are actually windows with light shining through them from inside the building.
  • The city of London objected to the original illuminated sign for the building. It was shortened to simply "OXO" and was approved because it could be interpreted as a geometric design, not simply shameless promotion.
