Prototyp-Standuhr, - Sommerauktion - Bilder Varia, Antiquitäten, Möbel/ Design

Entwurf Richard Meier, 1996, für Acerbis International, Italien, Holz, weiß lackiert, Quarzuhr mit Präzisionsmechanismus, Höhe 195 cm, 35 x 35 cm. (DRAX) Prototyp einer Kleinserie von nur wenigen Exemplaren, die von 1996 bis 2003 produziert wurde. "Referencing the compositional attitude of de Stijl, this two-meter-high standing clock is an assemblage of orthogonally-positioned planes of divergent forms and dimensions. As in the paintings of Mondrian and van Doesburg, a dynamic equilibrium disciplines the figure's asymmetry. Its elements are composed to effect a visual traveling about its "front" elevation which echoes the clockwise movement of the time-telling mechanism. Sculptured for viewing from all sides, the standing clock is best positioned as a free-standing object so as to the reveal its changing scapes as one circles it in space. The uniformly white, matte lacquer finish allows for an uninterrupted play of light and shadow on the clock's surfaces, and focuses attention on its composition and function." (Richard Meier) Mit Zertifikat und Entwurfszeichnung in Kopie. Provenienz: Acerbis Archiv, Italien
