Piet Mondrian Art. Why People Are Obsessed With Piet Mondrian?
May 10, 2018
Piet Mondrian is undeniably one of the great designers who’s work has crossed over into multiple disciplines of design, specifically his artwork Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow.
Mondrian believed that “…through horizontal and vertical lines constructed with awareness, but not with calculation, led by high intuition, and brought to harmony and rhythm, these basic forms of beauty, supplemented if necessary by other direct lines or curves, can become a work of art, as strong as it is true.”
Here’s just a few who also believed this to be true….
The amazing book Modern Art Desserts takes Mondrian’s, along with many other artist’s work, and turns them into beautifully delicious edible art. With the step-by-step assembly, you can step up your next birthday party cake to a work of art…
This cool space would just be another modern dining room without a little attention to detail. The Mondrian inspired wall art from Pixers takes this minimalist dining room from stylish to smart.
There’s no denying what the inspiration was for this swimsuit design by Sarah Schofield. There is clearly tension between these lines, which were believed to express different intensities of energy for Mondrian’s artwork.
While most of us don’t have the time to paint our nails like this, let alone have them done for us, they really do represent a work of art. I’m no stylist, but these nails would look best paired with a simple black dress to allow them to steal the show.
Inspired by Mondrian’s painting, designer Marcel Wanders has developed some new products for Dutch brand Moooi, one of them being this armchair. The cool, primary colored cushions can be switched out to create different interpretations of the artwork.
Last but not least, the DTMX SOCKS collection Mondrian Mania is a beautiful piece of artwork in its own right, but there’s no denying the color blocking, horizontal line and harmonious inspiration. The brand provides not only a striking design but a functionality due to silver nano-particles implemented into the yarn.
