The power of proportion
The almond-shaped front of LEZKA is reminiscent of the powerful symbol of the gate of life or womb of the universe. In Greek and Roman mythology it was associated with fecundity, procreation, and renewing of life. On the other hand, the Pythagoreans identified this symbol with the perfect mixture of masculine and feminine energy.
In Oskar Zięta’s reinterpretation of this multifaceted shape, it becomes a geometric play of surfaces. A piece of cut and closed-up air-blown steel profile becomes a mirror that reflects myths and contemporary beliefs. Every reflection it produces alludes to the symbolic dimension of Euclidean geometry and the power of cultural heritage.
