Donald Judd not only made abstract, three-dimensional sculptures; he also created furniture and interiors. He was both an artist and a theoretician who wrote influential treatises about art and society. The principles he formulated can be seen in his furniture and interiors. For instance, he wrote about the importance of the perfect equality of all elements.
Until 1984 Donald Judd limited his palette to the industrial colours of the materials he worked with. After he encountered the technique of enamelled aluminium in Switzerland, he made a series of coloured works like this. He sought combinations in the colours that were neither harmonious nor disharmonious. He looked for the multiple manifestations of the colour, without seeking to construct an aesthetic effect.
