Sphere-Trame

François Morellet

Morellet's Sphère-Trame was conceived in 1962, and was made in several different sizes. It is a defining object of the mid-century movement in minimalist sculpture, and displays extraordinary optical properties when suspended at eye-level.

This size was planned as an edition of 50, although only 15 were executed.
