Judd commissioned the colored anodized aluminum pieces which compose this artwork from Lehni AG, a furniture manufacturing company based in Switzerland that also fabricates Judd's signature furniture line.
Throughout his career, Donald Judd explored the infinite possibilities of color and material while working with Minimalist, serial forms, like the stacked box seen here. In this piece, the sides of the factory-made boxes—conceived, designed, and ordered by the artist—are bright green, while the top and bottom of each unit is clear Plexiglas. This factor allows for a multitude of views and reflections, and for visual integration with the surrounding architecture.
