Coloured Abstractions


With the Coloured Abstractions collection, Galerie Negropontes has chosen to highlight colour with the use of pure geometric forms. Inspired by the Geometric Abstraction movement of the 1950s and 1960s, designer Hervé Langlais uses the line as a structural base for his pieces and focuses on the interaction between colours and the importance of perception. The works have a playful and decorative dimension, touching on fashion. The simplicity of the shapes (circle, square, triangle) are enhanced by the intensity of the colour ratios. The works are lacquered in order to magnify the tones in a rich and brilliant palette. The palm veneer and brass are a reminder of the Art Deco movement of the 1930s.
