The Minimalist x Dion Hosrtmans via The Design Files

 

I have been a Dion Horstmans fan for so, so long. One of my biggest regrets in life has been not purchasing one of these now coveted pieces years and years ago for just a fraction of the price they are now. All because I couldn’t decide where I might put it.

I was thrilled to see an interview over on The Design Files with the man himself. There is also an amazing short film here.

“Working primarily in powder coated steel, timber, plywood and sheet metal, Dion creates abstract geometric forms which play with line, volume, light and shade.  His work has been said to reference architectural forms, celestial constellations, spacecrafts and bolts of lightening!  I’m totally in love with his powdercoated steel pieces, which seem at once rigid yet strangely delicate.  Wallmounted seamlessly, these striking, angular shapes lend themselves so well to interior spaces – and throw the most amazing shadows!”
