abstract - neutral & essential


Single Wire (2011) by David Lynch, in collaboration with Raphael Navot - production: Domeau & Pérès

Design is coming of age and enables people to choose an object of reflection like a moment of rest and inner vision. A spiritual choice that gives peace to the soul and rest to the brain, a silent witness of our time.

Furniture becomes geometric in form, objects behave in spiralling movement, function is undressed and minimized, colours are chiaroscuro neutrals; all done to come to the core of what life is all about.

These essentials are often made in natural fibres yet also include metallic and plastic components to give them a futuristic character.
