These expressive wall sculptures evokes the pure, ‘naive’ and unsophisticated stylings and patterns of the 1960ies brutalism movement. By methods of torch cut-and-welding iron pipes the designer has composed these great abstract constructions which are beautiful oxidized due to element exposure and age. Perfect complementary pieces for a ‘mix and match’ interior. When hanging the 3 lights close to each other, one large 84 cm abstract brutalist work of art is forming.

Very solid made, all three good condition, electra has been checked, wiring replaced.

The term ‘Brutalism’ ( derives from the French word brut, meaning raw ) was coined to describe an architectural movement that emerged in the fifties of the 20th century. It has been adopted by the realms of art and design to refer to expressive, attention grabbing ‘naive’ creations made of rough, high relief materials that forms a contrast with the polished, smooth and sophisticated ( related artists are Paul Evans, Henrik Horst and Paul Kingma ).
