Mobile phone company MOBIADO has launched a design-led, limited edition handset to mark the birthday of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian on March 7.
The hand-painted ‘Professional 3 DC – Piet Mondrian’ is the first in the brand’s new Dream Color series. It features a contemporary interpretation of the modernist’s artwork, imitating his use of asymmetry and his simplified pictorial expression.
As one of the founders of the Dutch modern movement, Mondrian is known for his striking color palette of fundamental basics and his linear and rectangular forms. In the 1920s this resulted in the creation of his best known artworks such as his “Composition A” painting.
The Professional 3 DC is made from aircraft aluminum, anodized to produce a rock hard ceramic coating and hand-painted by an artist. Large sapphire crystal plates have been inset into the aluminum body and are combined with buttons and screws created from stainless steel.
A miniature reproduction of “Composition A” has been painted within the battery cover. The replica of the original artwork on the inside creates a perfect symmetry with the modern interpretation on the outside.
