Where form meets function

One of our editors pointed me at something special in the Colette store, but my eyes immediately were drawn to this Cube Fontaine by Claire Fontaine. Something about the surfaces of this cube looks difficult to decipher. “The Cube Fontaine by artist Claire Fontaine is a hijacking of the famous Rubiks cube.

This poetic object mixes the solid of the cube and the liquid of water while discreetly evoking ecological disasters that surround us.”
