— apple fruit, communis, forbidden fruit, haven of peace, temptation, tree of knowledge
Beyond the object, malus communis is a poetic place, a haven of peace.
Since Eve offered Adam the forbidden fruit, the apple – fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil – has always been associated with temptation. Malus Communis symbolizes this temptation through the various media of knowledge and culture of our time such as the books, cd’s and dvd’s it contains. Nowadays, the shelf has become an object, even an essential tool to store one’s knowledge and culture.
Malus Communis calls to meditation, under the tree, where you can directly consume the culture you’ve just picked.
