Bookbox

Colorbox.

Collection of 10 mural racks. Structure in cardboard covered with paper in color.

Colorbox is presented, in the form of several parallelepiped, covered with paper bands of differently contrasted colours.

Except "simultaneous contrast", the different contrasts find, more or less, their analogies in "the art of colour" by Johannes Itten a Bauhaus professor.

I work with 51 papers of colors, this is a restricted pallet where I have on the other hand, an intimate knowledge of each colour.

For Colorbox, I used 23 colours.


Lightbox.

Emigrated to the United States in 1933, Josef Albers undertakes in the fifties, the work "Homage to the square".

It is hundreds of paintings, made up of three squares, inserted, one in the other, with the same shift downwards.

In these paintings of two dimensions, the colours suggest in each painting, a third imperceptible dimension.

I felt it as a box in there, a box in which a lamp gently lighten the space which separates the second from the third dimension.


Bookbox.

Structure in modern bookbinding technique covering a personal library.

This furniture is made to be posed on a tabletop and to receive a selection of books, the books will stay upright in any circumstance, thanks to the interior of the box being inclined.

To make this acceptable to an aesthetic eye, I made a decoration in a sort of "Max Bill" way
