Refining spaces with sculptures made of concrete and steel
Abstract, representational - or actually both? What we recognise in art objects often says a lot about ourselves and our view of the things around us. It is no coincidence that the meaning of art lies in the eye of the beholder.
Picking up on such thoughts, we have let ourselves be drawn into the play with geometric forms and their effect in the creation of our sculptures - a fascination to which the great pioneers of abstract art had already succumbed at the beginning of the last century: Squares, semicircles, rhombuses - formed from steel, the building material of the industrial world par excellence - come together, form an order in space and yet remain visually in constant motion, in flux, organic as it were. Like leaves in the wind, boats on the water or dancing flames - what we see is there and yet subject to constant change.
When viewed at close range, the figure becomes pure form, hard, raw material that can be grasped and comprehended, underlined by the chosen material of metal: cool, smooth, industrial, even if shaped by human hands. But even from a short distance this impression becomes blurred, the brazen forms suddenly appear mobile, light and filigree, something natural, not a rigid object - perhaps a branch with leaves or a reflection of light? Depending on the viewing angle and the incidence of light, the effect of the steel sculptures changes and they know how to make an impression as eye-catchers indoors as well as in the garden or on the terrace.
A sustainably beautiful combination: steel and concrete
The floating metal constructions always find support on a concrete cube in the proven purist CO33 style. As the base that supports our small steel works of art, the concrete is exceptionally not the foreground element, but deliberately takes a back seat, practically becoming the "servant" of the sculptures attached to it. At the same time, it grounds the delicate art objects with its solid look and feel. In keeping with this task, we have therefore not given the concrete a velvety-smooth surface finish this time, unlike most of our design furniture, but have left the material in its original, rough form and appearance, with all the pores, fine cracks and unevenness that are characteristic of concrete. In contrast, the steel sculptures themselves are completely smooth, their lines precise and strict. The steel can either be left untreated, with an industrial look, or finished with a special gold-look lacquer, which gives it a particularly noble appearance.
Available in a classic light concrete grey or in an elegant anthracite slate tone, the concrete bases provide each sculpture with the necessary stability to place it in any location - whether free-standing in the room or even outside in the garden.
Choose between six different organic-geometric motifs and two sizes each for the new eye-catcher in your home! The smaller sizes have an overall height of between 48 and 66 cm and are perfect as a visual focal point on a sideboard or console table (e.g. insert any of our models here), while the larger models are between 51 and 78 cm high and are therefore particularly suitable for free-standing placement in the room or as an outdoor object. In order to unfold the full effect of the sculptures, it is our clear recommendation to place the sculptures in pairs.
We produce each sculpture as an individual commissioned piece of pure handicraft - so they are always unique.
Art for indoors and outdoors: Stylish accents with modern steel sculptures
You may be asking yourself: is there any room at all in a consistently minimalist interior style for decorative objects such as a design sculpture whose sole purpose is, after all, an aesthetic one? Couldn't this make the room look slightly cluttered, the perfectly designed relationship of form, colour and material lose expression? After all, no one wants to feel overwhelmed by the furnishings when entering a flat. So it is also and especially true when choosing decorative objects: Less is more. But skilfully placed accents, chosen to match or sometimes in deliberate contrast to the room concept, can represent a connecting element between the interior and the people who move and live in it. Objects of art such as paintings, a stylish vase or even sculptures reveal a small, well-dosed insight into the personality of their owners, convince as a statement of taste and style and appeal to our sense of beauty. In this way, they underline the interior design in a discreet yet effective way and interact with the people in the room.
Sculptures are particularly suitable for this purpose, as they have a haptic dimension that is not inherent in a picture hanging on the wall, for example: art you can touch, literally.
The boundaries between stylish decorations from series production and works by artists, most of which are unique, are quite fluid. Our steel sculptures with concrete bases can also be classified in this transitional area between arts and crafts and collectors' items: They are made as individual works, with the highest precision craftsmanship, yet reproducible and - to a certain extent - customisable according to the customer's wishes. Created not as a gallery object, but as a living component of your own personal living space, in the same workshop and with the same high-quality materials as our furniture. This production method also allows us to offer you our steel sculptures at a much more affordable price than is usually the case for art objects of this kind.
