Origin Made's "Ornament and Crime" sculpture draws inspiration from Adolf Loos' 1913 essay, offering a fresh perspective relevant to our era. This wall and tabletop artwork engages with the same discourse, emphasizing the significance of symbolism and aesthetics as intrinsic functions. Objects that possess both meaning and visual appeal contribute to enriching spaces, fostering positive emotions and interactions among inhabitants. Throughout history, masks and head sculptures have symbolized our shared humanity and cultural diversity. Ornament and Crime by Origin Made transforms this iconic emblem into a tangible sculpture, free from cultural appropriations, and seamlessly integrated with modern furniture and decor. As a homage to cultural heritage and a celebration of contemporary design, "Ornament and Crime" bridges the gap between past and present, inviting dialogue and fostering a deeper connection to the spaces we inhabit.
