TOTEM is not a work of design but rather a search for balance between solid and void, between heavy and light. Intuition led desire, from which emerged an idea. The idea evaporated and the object remained. Even though the spirit transcends, the TOTEM continues to be essential. Three elementary geometric forms are stacked one on top of the other in different sequences, like building blocks. The practice in play revisits the simplicity of gesture towards a spiritual harmony between functionality and purposelessness, between form and formlessness. Composed of three shapes—a cylinder, a circle, a cone—TOTEM can be arranged in two compositions.
