The Mondrian madness that artist Piet Mondrian inspired in the last few decades has not yet died down. It first came into pop art with the famous Yves St Laurent Mondrian dress. Now Piet cabinets, wedge-heel shoes, flower vases, clocks and even electric fireplace installations framed with blocks of primary colours have been designed to create bright splashes of colour in modern homes.
You can easily have your very own Mondrian installation on a door panel or a glass partition to divide a large room into smaller private spaces. All you need is a glazier from where to buy your glass and have it cut in the rectangles that you require.
Pick solid colours; design your panel to suit the surroundings
Either pick the Mondrian painting that appeals to you the most. Or simply adapt the style in your own way, to match the décor of your own home. Let your imagination go wild. You can have a lot of fun with the entire project and express your unique self.
Backpainted glass comes in unlimited shades - rich colours that are deep and bold; light pastel shades that have a soothing appearance; bright, clean colours for a fresh look or deeper tones for warmth. You can use panels of any colour of your choice for your design.
But if you want it to use the authentic shades of Mondrian art, then stick to primary colours like he did. Use solid blocks of reds, yellows, blues, blacks and whites in any arrangement you find pleasing to the eye. For the last few months of his life, Mondrian had bits of coloured paper on his wall that he rearranged from time to time to create installations that have been preserved in photographs and exhibited as the 'Wall Works'.
