Forest. The sea of trees. You will not find two the same. What feature of birch makes it so easily recognizable? I was surprised by the answer - disproportionality. Reflecting on this term had to first ask yourself the question - what is the proportion?
General definition of the relationship between two or more sizes. According to this non-proportionality it is impossible. This concept therefore suggests the existence of undesirable proportions that fall outside of certain canon. So what criteria I will use in designing or to whom I will be opposed? Close to me are the words of Giacomo Leopardi, who puts beauty in what unclear, including what open and undefined. For this reason, he designed objects without function. I try vainly to escape from the associations. Materiality is inseparable from cultural codes as well as space. Donald Judd is an artist aware of the relationship proportion of the object to the space in which it is located. In his works everything is whole. Geometric forms along the long observation reveals layers of meaning. He believed that simple does not mean easy. Simple can be even more complex, multi-faceted than this seemingly complicated, difficult. Judd made usable furniture. But I do not call it designer. To me closer to a composer who uses rhythm. Have dominion over the instruments - material and technology. In industrial design outside material conditions, we use the ergonomics, social needs, ecology and so on. Take the example of brush. Moves paint on canvas. its form determined by a function and ergonomics. Consequential shape of the brush smoothly goes from circular cross-section stem, in place of the rectangular housing bristles. The formed organic liquid form, despite the geometrical cross-section.
Sculpture, product, nature - everything has been designed. That they have proportions it is conditional on the amount and type „instruments”. Judd using the right angles that do not occur in nature, not moving away from the man - his habitat. Contrary - objects may induce feelings of harmony and wholeness of being in the world as if we were in the forest, which has its own rhythm, its melody.
