The Black Square takes us away from the comforting world of appearances. It would be facile to talk about Suprematism in the world of interiors, but taking geometric shapes and a limited palette of colours makes for a minimalistic modern combination. To soften this pure look there is now a new hybrid named Florimetric, where flowers are given structure and symmetry. Think original Welsh blankets or the new Daisy by Ashley Hicks for Alternative Flooring.
Artists and designers alike explore geometric vocabulary, and this simple and powerful pictorial language is one that has endured throughout history and continues to evolve to this day – imbedded in art, advertising, design and in our everyday aesthetic.
