Martin Szekely

Text by Elisabeth Lebovici.

Martin SzekelyMartin Szekely (born 1956) is one of the most acclaimed designers of his generation, creating furniture and objects for museums, private collectors and small manufacturers, and working on major industrial projects with international companies such as Nestlé, Heineken and Hermès. This monograph features more than 200 images of the designer's work, including his drawings and never-before-published notes.

Featured image is Cork coffee table, from the “simple boxes” collection, 2009, by Martin Szekely, reproduced from Martin Szekely.

FROM THE BOOK
"It took a lot of fumbling to find an ordinary word that accurately describes the impression produced by each of Martin Szekely’s tables, desks, shelves, chairs, and boxes…How can I give a simple description of the feeling of 'one', of unity and resolution, created by the discretion and evanescence of the objects in question? How to describe the feeling of plenitude without sounding too mystical?
The American Donald Judd, who was a significant art critic as well as an artist, used the term 'singleness', echoing Michel de Certeau’s 'practical science of the singular'. And for want of a better term, I shall describe Martin Szekely’s furniture in term of a singular absence of duality. The pieces appear all in one homogeneous block, often as an enigma, and always as a noun: chair, table, desk, cupboard, box, console table, armchair, footstool, mirror. In most instances, these common nouns are their necessary condition."

Elisabeth Lebovici, excerpted from Martin Szekely.
