Danish Design: Komplot
Three-dimensional objects formed by plane workpieces – in paper or veneer, metal or plastic – is an outstanding challenge from a creative point of view and a long-standing fascination for Komplot Design – the Danish Design Studio founded by Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen. Open-minded the duo defies design dogmas and explores the principles of transforming the two-dimensional into objects in space.
Ettore Sottsass Jr. (1917 - 2007) embodied the spiritual position of the Italian avant-garde intellectual design. Ettore Sottsass belongs with his complete work to the founders of the modern author design.
While art pioneers such as Marcel Duchamp as early as 1913 declared readymades like a bicycle wheel (1913), a bottle dryer (1914) and even a urinal (1917) - depending on the viewer - as a work of art, since the seventies designers have discovered the Objet trouvé, found objects as a design principle.
