Industrial designer and artist Charles Kalpakian is best known for his imaginative variations on classical patterns of cabinet design and lighting, using techniques pulled from Minimalism and conceptual sculpture. His works include LED lamps embedded in three-dimensional panels, creating areas of sharp light and deep shadow, and pieces in which panels emerge from the wall at various angles such that a shift in the observer’s point of view can completely alter the visible form of the object. Throughout his practice, Kalpakian revels in creating the illusion of undulating movement, transforming the calligraphic and line drawing methods of the decorative arts into work that is as functional as it is artistic.
