Iron, cement, wood and glass: these are some of the modern, often contrasting, materials typically found in industrial style, which originated in the States. Industrial style is a gritty, no-frills look rooted in reality. The “Three Flags” by Jasper Johns (1958) is well aligned with this style, which can also be reworked with an elegant twist.
In photography, the images can tell of distinctly dynamic furniture, with clean strokes of light that brush past the individual features of different compositions. By focusing on just a few details, you can better appreciate the finishes and how some elements have been reclaimed from the surrounding environment, such as windows, exposed beams or even bolts, which reinforce the gritty feel at the heart of this style.
