Certificate of provenance by Nikol Art inventory no. MMAE / AC / OP / 669
Literature: "La dinamica dell'oggetto visivo", Editore Allemandi, p.161, Nikol Internazionale, Catalog 1971. Work purchased directly from the artist in 1969. Axis / Emme is a moving sculpture, an asymmetrical kinetic sculpture made of steel and wood. The containers "hanging" on the inside and the "movement" transmitted by the particular configuration of the metal profile confer sculptural qualities on the work. This is also due to the "two-sided" positioning of the white / oil green / aubergine purple lacquered wooden containers. Massironi once again turns out to be a true avant-garde artist, a precursor who combines art, design and form functionalities for this sculpture which, in real dimensions, utilization features and space collocation, will be reflected in the following 1970s, 80s, 90s and subsequent years, in the production of the most important Italian and international companies engaged in "open space" furnishing.
