The Uncollected Collection — Living Divan
Some ceremonial objects possess the incontrovertible countenance of a call to the absolute. Everything is reduced to the minimum; everything is sobriety and necessity.
A frugality that nevertheless alludes to the utmost opulence: one line contains all lines, one curve all curves, one thickness all thicknesses.
