Cross, Square, and Circle:
The edition to Malevich – Suprematism in
the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin
Among the pioneers of non-objective
painting, Malevich created the most radical image of all when he painted
the "Black Square" in 1915. Together with the circle and the cross, his
geometric "zero form" made up the fundamental elements of suprematist art.
Suprematism: this was the formula according to which the world was organized.
In a consistent manner, suprematist designs for ceramics, murals, and textile
ornamentation arose throughout the 20s, as well.
The current edition
to Kasimir Malevich: Suprematism also follows this tradition, quoting
the forms of the cross, square, and circle in an extraordinary set of three
cufflinks manufactured in the silver workshop of Master R.O.S.S.I.I. in
The cufflinks, after an idea by Nicolas V. Iljine, are made from
925 silver and can be obtained in an exclusive wooden case. The individual
price of this limited edition of 200 is Euro 195.00; 175.00 for club members.
