SHOE SCREENAllen Jones
A brand new screen by Allen Jones exclusively for Paradisoterrestre in a limited edition of 30 signed and numbered pieces (+2AP).
The legendary British pop artist – part of whose work evolves around the female figure – conceives this piece of furniture as a canvas, enriching it with suggestions drawing on the imagery of fetishism. The screen encompasses the drawing, reproduced in silk-screen printing, of a décolleté surrounded by a cloud, an actualization of a lithograph part of the Shoe Box collection created by Jones himself in 1968.
The screen structure was designed by Japanese architect Kazuhide Takahama for Dino Gavina in the 1970s: five wooden panels joined by a patented rubber hinge system.
