Liberating Modernism

At Mr Bigglesworthy we love a good clean line and a sleek, simple form. However...

We had to admit that when interior designer Jonathan Adler referred to designer Verner Panton as "the man who liberated us from the 'anal-retentiveness' of modernism", he did have a point. So, we took it upon ourselves to show you that not all that is modernist came with a stiff upper lip. Among the straight lines and geometric forms of the mid century were these celebrations of 'art that moves'. Whether it is a kinetic sculpture, the fluid shape of a chair, a painting which seems to 'splash' or a still from a moving image clip, we are inspired by these indivual expressions of freedom.
