The idea behind Christian Wassmann's 5 Platonic Objects project that is of a geometric furniture series, has been his hypothesis that basic living space needs can be easily fulfilled by objects designed in five specific forms of platonic solids.
Designer Wassmann, a designer with an insatiable fascination with geometry that can be traced through his portfolio, has designed paintings, furniture and other objects that only used the platonic solid forms and created a modern, minimalist living space.
"I was just playing with paper models of shapes, and wanted to see if I could turn them into functional furniture items," explains Christian Wassmann of his pursuit.
The obsessive thought behind the project is intriguing for its devoted nature. The project will be exhibited at the R 20th Century gallery starting March 5, 2013.
