Nothing superfluous might be the keyword to a portrait of Martin Szekely. Furnisher or industrial designer, the unity of a formal vocabulary that recurs from object to object is absent from his work, whatever the spehere of production. Furniture and industrial objects are not solitary or selfish expressions, whose production is subject to singularity, the surprise effect, or the signature factor. Szekely draws his rule from a contrary attitude: ’Design is the response made to a question posed by a client’. ’The limits of the object are the object itself, its semantic definition is in the title’. This consciousness stems from industrial design that implies the immediate recognition of the project. A successful object is one whose unity of form and material answer the use to which it is destined. ’Drawing? I’ve drawn a lot and I find myself working with propositions that do not derive from drawing. Design without drawing, the separation of the object and its gestation’.
’My aim is to reach a sparing result that cannot be described as minimalism, and yet which retains a link with style’.
