Shapes of Cut-Outs
Create your own Modern Art artworks on an endless diorama
Inspired in the cutouts used by Henri Matisse along his later period, Shapes is a diorama toy that morphs every time you play with it.
It has 9 methacrylate pieces and an elm wood base with 5 lanes. Fitting the pieces on the wooden base grooves, you make them stand like colorful waves, and from then your creativity takes control.
Unlike with other souvenirs or gifts inspired in Matisse, with this item you get to experience the creative process - which is alive - through interaction. Perfect for strengthening visual and spatial abilities for all publics, Shapes is an educational centerpiece that you can also display on your shelf, desk, or office (perfect for a break!)
Experiment with colors, positions, depths, just like an artist. Never tire your designs - rearrange the pieces, try with different backgrounds, or represent real works. Display results, challenge others, or decorate what's yours in the shape of Matisse.
The wavy leaves look exactly like the painter's in his later period. You can read more about their interesting story here.
