How to transform the Pythagoras theorem into your living room
SEP 13, 2017 | By Reecha Kulkarni
Bring Pythagoras back to your home, without the math textbooks. ‘Pythagoras’ Study’, a new range of furniture by Iqrup + Ritz, juxtaposes the Greek mathematician’s rigid theorem with inspiration from the fluid style of British sculptor Henry Moore. This cross-pollination of geometric and flexible surprisingly creates a subtle bohemian vibe, with structured shelves and eclectic tables. The Samos shelf is a tribute to Pythagoras’ birthplace in Greece, with triangular displays and dark wood. Pair it with The Henry Coffee Table, its curvy base highlighting Moore’s semi-abstract forms, and hand-woven shawls by artisans in Gujarat to forge a cosy living room.
