  • Catalogue Essay

    The austere and minimal elegance so prevalent in Martin Szekely’s designs gives way to literal opulence in his large “Solaris Round” table. Directly referencing Andrei Tarkovski’s 1972 film Solaris, the table stands out as an examplar of Szekely’s design objective: “My aim is to achieve an economy in the result that can’t even be defined as minimalist."
