An abstract functional art collection
The collection is a derivation from an artwork by the great maestro Pablo Picasso titled “The Kitchen”. This painting is striking, neutral yet colored, muted yet bold. In an attempt to explore space through the connections formed between lines, the Pabloligero collection was born. Our aim Is to use playful, simplistic and sculptural elements from the painting to transform fine art into functional art. And thus, modifying the elements to derive visually abstract lighting range. One would see very clearly that the metaphysical and physical lines are forming certain shapes all through our collection Initial version of the painting “The Kitchen” was monochrome however in the second version Picasso added splashes of color. Hence our introduction from textured colorless glass to Smoky Grey and Brown along with metal in three different color finishes one would see in the collection.
