Calling Calder. Are you receiving? Yes, the feel here is distinctly Calder, the levity of his sculptures being the direct source of inspiration for this concept. Smaller models pay fine homage to the artist’s balancing acts, focusing on contrast: block-color, tubing and laces linking the separate elements all combine for an effect that could be summed up as ‘hyphenated’. This is graphics so hardcore you could call it punctuation. Frames have presence and poise, offering the illusion of suspension and bubble-effect end pieces. A delicacy in the details belies the frames’ sense of fun.
MOBILO demands irony-inflected personalities with strong centers of gravity that thrill at the sight of pure titanium. Once again, an emphasis on the technical, on color, on games of form and volume. This is an elementary concept, whose on-the-wire weightlessness is underscored by our trademark frank tonalities.
