HÀ NỘI – Two major Vietnamese contemporary artists, painter Lê Thiết Cương and sculptor Đinh Công Đạt, have teamed up to surprise art lovers with an interior décor collection.
The collection features several objects using the two most popular materials in Việt Nam – lacquer and ceramic. The works are on display at the exhibition Duo Design at the Press Club in Hà Nội.
Although the objects are made to be used, they deserve to be regarded as artworks.
The painter, who is well-known for his minimalist artworks, also presents a collection of sole ceramic-and-lacquer pots, including the one entitled Hạt Gạo (A Grain of Rice), which won the Good Design Award – ASEAN Design Selection 2003. Cương created other pots with the idea inspired by Vietnamese fruits such as areca nut, papaya, and loquat.
