E&Y “edition HORIZONTAL” / the Design Museum
edition HORIZONTAL multiple collection line
A multiple refers to a work of art produced as an edition.
It is a representation of something – acquiring value and significance as a person takes it in his/her hands and intelligently filling the blank space of life.
Created without consideration for functionality, multiples provide the joy of ownership and captivate us to our psychological core. Such multiples create relationships that expand over time, like an open vista.
“edition HORIZONTAL” is a collection line by E&Y that presents the artistic aspects of designer’s and artisan’s work. The multiples are accompanied by messages from their creators, along with an openness to interpretation.
That leaves a wide margin to people while stating the message.
