Anyone who was an art student probably remember how the significance of “negative space” was drilled into their heads. Well I admit, it is important, but it’s also important to go back and look at the impact it’s had on art and design. This is the concept behind “the utility of emptiness,” an exhibition currently going on at the Museu de les Arts Decoratives in Barcelona, Spain.

Personlly, I feel that they did an excellent job curating this show. Here are some of the selected works!

Living Tower (1968) by Verner Panton

Joc de coberts de servir (2001) by Judith Höfel


Event Horizon (1992) by Marc Newson
