“Blue has no dimensions; it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not. All colours arouse specific associative ideas while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract... I did not like nothing, and thus that I met the empty, the deep empty, the depth of the blue” — Yves Klein.
The collection consists of several base elements; pure volumes with simple clear shapes. A person can play with them and create different combinations of objects like mirrors, tables, poufs, lights and art pieces. The collection strays from the mundane allowing for the freedom to define a space unique to ones’ physical, tactile and emotional experience.
Monochrome objects are a symbol of pure materials and magnify one’s perception of texture, warmth, coldness, softness, fragility and hardness.
The main principles of the collection
Pure volumes are made of different materials, that allow one to connect them without screws, as they have different weight and magnets in between, so that force of gravity makes them stable. Each object is like a living organism, a union, that is created from different parts, that support each other and come to balance.
Throughout the duration of the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018, the Nōme display was formed and reformed by attendees who created new objects from the same pieces. It is an experiment to show how we can explore shapes and understand how one shape can be a base for different objects.
