Projektbeskrivelse:
Princippet i min første stol, VIO fra 1984, og min sofa, SofaVIO fra 1985, er her gentænkt som bord, taburet eller piedestal. Projektet rummer en hilsen til årets 100-års jubilar, ”højskolen for opfindsomhed”, hvor man ræsonnerede, at trekanten er gul, cirklen blå, og
firkanten rød. Skolegeometri i primærfarver. Problematikken optog skolen og dens lærere, som det gjorde på min skole, Den Grafiske Højskole, 50 år senere. I sit stille sind kan man mene, at solen jo er gul og æblet er rødt, endog grønt, så Itten, Klee og Kandinsky kan rende og hoppe …Men de gamle ægypteres hieroglyf for ”mark” var en rød firkant.

Project description:
This project rethinks the principle of my first chair, VIO from 1984, and my sofa, SofaVIO from 1985, translating it into a table, stool or pedestal. The project is also a nod to this year’s centenarian, the ‘college of invention’, where they reasoned that the triangle is yellow, the circle is blue, and the square is red. School geometry in primary colours. This issue was of interest to the school and its teachers, as it was in my own school, The Graphic Arts Institute of Denmark, 50 years later. Maybe you’re thinking that the sun is yellow, and the apple is red, even green, so Itten, Klee and Kandinsky can go jump in a lake … But the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for ‘field’ was a red square.
