Rings of ruby reds. Concentric circles of bright blues, opulent oranges, and mellow yellows. Time to play target practice with this tote bag by the mid-century Danish artist, Poul Gernes. © Gernes Estate
Perfectly provocative. Colourfully edgy. Symbolic symmetry and jazzy geometry. Poul Gernes’ was rigorously experimental.

Or with Gernes’ own words: "I cannot alone - want to join in?"
