Mandala Intarsia Limited Edition

Intarsia Limited Edition

Sideboard with brushed metal legs, doors with inlays and structure veneered in natural maple. Doors with push-pull system and fitted with one internal shelf. It is also available in the hanging version.

The author choses a traditional geometric pattern to show that the quality of results is not determined by the form, but by the use of colours. It is a pictorial pattern he used in specific phases of his career. It goes back to the 1960s and develops an idea that took up a good deal of his time in that period. In each rectangle the colourless light is decomposed into the eight colours of the chromatic circle, so that light becomes visible through the use of colours. Each rectangle is made up of opposing complementary couples, to achieve the maximum chromatic brightness.

Jorrit Tornquist

Jorrit Tornquist was born in 1938 in Graz, Austria.  Since 1992, he has also become an Italian citizen. He is above all a painter. He teaches light-colour at Milan Polytechnic, Faculty of Industrial Design, at the Faculty of Architecture in Graz and in the Carrara Academy in Bergamo. He has been studying colours and perception for forty years.
He started from a very scientific and ecological approach, based on accurate experiments on colour, density and clarity and on the analysis of the complementary effects, according to the Concrete Art tradition. Subsequently, the artist became aware of the insufficiency of an art, which was limited to geometric and programmed projects. Therefore, Tornquist elaborated his own "Theory of Colour", based on his technical knowledge, together with personal sensibility and studies about colours effects on mood. The merger of scientific and psychological elements in the work, his attempt to conciliate the colour structural-chromatic value with the sensitive-affective value, in fact, are the artist's actual innovations.
