In addition to his decades of activity as a designer of typefaces, Adrian Frutiger has for just as long worked on “free” forms. These forms are here assembled in a single volume for the first time. With them, the artist examines some basic themes of human existence.

As with the typefaces, the relationship between black and white areas, inner and outer forms, is essential. In Frutiger’s creative artistic work, the harmonious relationship between form and counter form, between black and white, becomes a statement of human and universal potentialities: a harmonious juxtaposition of basically conflicting antagonisms.
