Museum of Modern Art in New York has in its permanent collection of Architecture and Design “Titanium AlgoRythms Columns” designed and coauthored by Alex Kveton.

“My inspiration comes from studying the nature around us. The intricate structure of a leaf, robustness of grass wind blowing through an open window, or moon reflecting in the water, all create the logical harmony of our nature’s ‘building blocks’.

Nature is pure, clean, and precious in its own creation. Such insights are on my mind when creating sculptures. Simple, yet elegant, intended to enrich, decorate and above all distinguish the space as beautiful flowers or morning sunlight would.”
