Almost impenetrable, sketched curves crystallise in an empty space that captures the stylistic features of the plant world. The nakedness of the veins takes you into a weightless dimension, outside time and reality, where any choice becomes possible, slipping the clutches of rationality.

Regular full planes create an illusorily homogeneous space, traversed by geometric knots. A closer look and the background comes alive, inhabited by minimal tall lines that create a second perspective, leading the eyes deeper and widening the visual horizon. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

A relief background recalls the subtle fractures in craquelé ceramics. Trapped in the cobweb of cracks, seemingly random golden traces illuminate the material to become interrupting motifs that play with the observer's imagination. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

The search for new expressive solutions, which distinguished the Bauhaus school and Marcel Breuer's Brutalist architecture, inspires a composition with austere visual impact. There is immediate reference to the exposed concrete surfaces in different shades of grey and to a precise design code.

Everything is based on the theme of the circle and the square, apparently divided, but in fact united by a cascade of mysterious objects that glide from above, moving diagonally. The use of chiaroscuro gives the surface three-dimensionality, lending rhythm to its interpretation.

A system of lines scratches the surface, saturating all the available space. As if engraved above it, a series of parallel bands of colour in the foreground divides the subject into panels, while the tone-on-tone choice lends uniformity to the whole. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

A minimally designed glass surface in the foreground is superimposed on a group of palm trees with moving leaves. An image that plays with the rigour of Brutalist architecture and the freedom of nature: entrusting the purity of the structure with all expressive power. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

The strength of the pattern animates primary, rational forms that intersect and develop a sequence dominated by sculptural plasticity. Everything contributes to evoking the relationship between solids and voids that animate architectural volumes dense in matter and to communicating energy.

Superimposed fields of different shapes, sizes and thicknesses, woven together in an original range of textures and gradually duller greys. A single white line crosses them diagonally like a ray of light, illuminating the entire composition. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

A free composition plays on the superimposition of square shapes on softer hued spherical forms left in the background. Thin lines crisscross to penetrate boundaries and define space, harking back to the first traits of a project's genesis. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

A backdrop composed of vertical marks suggests the existence of a place behind, immersed in fog, without revealing it. The curtain of elements creates an indefinite reality, illuminated by a dense, almost solid light. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.

Clever use of interlocking parallelepipeds in relief brings to mind a model city seen from above. The graphic language used invites the eye to see a compositional grid, while the choice of monochrome gives a strong character to the whole. This subject freely interprets the collection theme “Beyond form”, a contemporary reinterpretation of pure, rigorous narrative pattern, monochrome shades, and texture: typical of the architectural movement of the 1950s, Brutalism.
