Inspired by forms and rules of classical design, Objects of Common Interest produced a collection for the ‘New Reflections’ exhibition at Matter design gallery, New York.
The ‘New Reflections’ objects have been created using glass, marble, and concrete, and each piece has been designed following the rules of Euclidean geometry. This ancient Greek method, described by mathematician Euclid, requires lines, shapes and angles to be constructed through deducing answers without calculated measurements. The collection materialises as a series of marble tables, orb-like concrete based mirrors and tinted glass vases and bowls, which characteristically inherit iconic forms of classic design. In a statement about the pieces, Matter comment that Objects of Common Interest have designed “an array of amalgamated forms in monolithic and composite execution, which span the fluid limits of transparency, material, and form.”
