In good condition, a unique and even rare minimalistic NAEF art design object, the Quadrigo MAXI by the Swiss designer Jean-Philippe Rossinelli (1949–1994).
This MAXI version has been out of production for quite some time now, and is one of the best known art objects produced by Naef Spiele Swiss; so, actually not offered to play with but rather to be displayed as an art object.
The four white uniform wooden elements also come with a folder providing photos and drawing examples, as well as a photo of the designer and his signature (we suspect in printed form).
The Quadrigo consists of four uniform elements that can be combined to attain three-dimensional formations. It creates organic linkages in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal setup.
The characteristic feature is the unity of the four elements. This number hasn't been chosen randomly, but rather ensures optimal aesthetic information and a meaningful function. It's precisely this simplicity that encourages one to freely combine them.
The intention of the Quadrigo is not to work towards a definite solution, but it rather wants to be reinterpreted, reshaped and redesigned in a new way every time. The creations sensitise the feel for gravity.
Four white wooden elements: height 22 cm x width 5.5 cm x depth 5.5 cm
Grey wooden case: height 13.5 cm x width 24 cm x depth 24 cm.
A collector's object for the true NAEF Spiele collector, for whom this piece will be recognised in an instant.
Have a good look at the close-up photos at the end of the photo series, in respect to a couple of minuscule paint damages in one of the corners. The photos provide an accurate impression of the lot on offer.
Will be sent well-packaged and by registered post, by PostNL Parcel service, within the Netherlands and abroad. Please visit our Catawiki page as well, for other vintage designer lots.
