The Michael Aram Block Collection was inspired by the clean, linear proportions of contemporary interiors, so often influenced by mid-20th century design. The definitive composition of the deeply recognizable color-block art of Mondrian, the abstraction of individual city blocks naturally forming a pave pattern, even the texture of blocks of natural stone - introducing a new take on the organic motifs Michael is known for. The collection then comes together in a series of objects which all fit within a single large grid but can be arranged in an endless number of variations.
"I started with sheets of paper cut into various sizes of squares and rectangles in multiples of 2 inches. I took the pieces and arranged a pattern I thought was beautiful in and of itself. The result was a creative process that was unlike anything I'd done before and a collection that invites enormous interaction from the people who bring these pieces into their home." Michael Aram
