Is it possible for everything you need in a living space to be encapsulated in five specific forms? The New York-based architect and designer Christian Wassmann thinks so, and has just unveiled a suite of five designs as proof.

A table, a lounge chair, a pillow, a pendant light, and a vase comprise 5 Platonic Objects, an installation currently on view at R 20th Century. The five objects on display are an extension of Wassmann’s lasting preoccupation with geometry, and, in this case, the five forms from Euclidean geometry, known as platonic solids. Says Wassmann, “I was just playing with paper models of shapes, and wanted to see if I could turn them into functional furniture items.”

My, we only wish everyone’s playing could result in an output this sublime.
