Painted Wood Cube
4" x 4" x 4"
A sculptural bookend or paperweight, this little cube looks lovely on any surface and complements any tabletop, bookshelf, or bedside table.
A brief history of the colour:
Greens are known for their dynamic spatial qualities. Greens that are warmer and contain more yellow have a tendency to advance, while colder greens that contain more blue tend to recede.
An oil paint in this colour is used on the kitchen cabinet doors of Le Corbusier’s 1952 Unité d’Habitation in Marseilles. He apparently liked the colour so much he included it in his 1959 colour keyboard and reproduced the colour on wallpaper in his Salubra collection.
Kandinsky talks of green as the most restful of colours when its yellow (advancing) and blue (receding) properties are balanced. Green is the the period of summer, when nature is resting from the storms of winter and the productive energy of spring.
Please note: Carefully matched to historical colour cards and samples, these colours cannot be reproduced digitally, and variation in appearance on-screen is unavoidable. The paint surface itself is somewhat delicate; it is recommended that it be kept out of direct sunlight.
