Martin Scekely in real life

Szekely believes that objects aimed at the largest possible market - everyday objects that you barely notice - possess a 'power'. In both branches of his work he has been on a 15-year quest to achieve a kind of creative purity - pure functionality. 'My aim is to achieve an economy in the result that can't even be defined as minimalist,' he explains. 'It's something commonplace.'

His furniture / art are compelling in their simplicity, extreme refinement and yet their perfect usability. I love to to see them in real life setting.
