Description ‘Cinétisme II’ by French Lebanese Charles Kalpakian is a hypnotic wall cabinet in lacquered wood and chestnut flirting with Op Art and the spirit of Vasarely. Unexpected and immediately eye-catching in the true sense of the word, ‘Cinétisme II’ establishes itself like a true functional painting. While capturing the viewer’s gaze, it can be used to welcome books and showcase small objects - either on the black shelves or into the parts hidden by the three chestnut doors. Here Charles Kalpakian explores the scientific phenomenon of bistability applied to furniture, or how to shock our brain pathways with an ambiguous image which changes our perspectives by confusing our visual perception. 'Cinétisme II' Wall Cabinet is exclusively produced and sold by Galerie BSL is a limited edition of 8 pieces + 4 artist proofs per color version. Its modularity allows custom-made compositions, potentially covering large walls.

Charles Kalpakian’s design is the result of his mixed inspirations: France his country of residence; Lebanon his country of birth and Street Art, his contemporary artistic culture. These influences take shape through the reinterpretation of motifs from the decorative arts and the history of architecture, filtered by a resolute urban and contemporary culture. The stroke is always clean, even if the gesture resembles calligraphy in space.
