John M Armleder once said (in the eighties) that the work he makes is similar to making B-movies. Here one could conclude that ‘Circle et Carré’ looks very much like the work of a designer. Indeed the lamp is truely a design, but the image with metal grid on the wall is not and just a remarkable addition of the artist.
