Forms from Life, 2019

TYPOE created this installation of Forms from Life specifically for Color Field. This grouping of minimalist shapes resembles enlarged building blocks, and are inspired by the design ethos of Ettore Sottsass, founder of the Memphis Design Group. The invitation for viewer interactivity is influenced by public parks designed by Isamu Noguchi. Forms from Life are a reference to how the foundational information we learn as children informs our understanding of the world, and how interacting with others to create meaning can dramatically shape our lives.
