A series of wooden blocks appear to be cut and overlap each other in ‘Collage Collection’, a wall mounted storage system by Madrid-based design studio Dsignio.
The Collage Collection “has much to do” with the artistic movements that emerged at the beginning of the 20th century says Dsignio. “It is a time when art breaks with everything and appear some movements which trigger a real cultural revolution.”
“The collection is based on Suprematism that arose from Malevich’s works as well as in some aspects of cubism and Neoplasticism. This movement promoted geometric simplicity, removing all superfluous and getting very simple and forceful shapes.”
Dsignio’s desired result was to create the visual illusion that the geometric shapes were cut and overlapped each other. “To do this [we] generated several modules to get many different compositions to cover needs for most of the users.”
“It is not a sculpture, it is an object resembling a sculpture, a complex collection based on simplicity.”
Collage Collection has been nominated for a 2014 Delta Award, which honours the best design from Spain.
