Axa Margarine. 1934.
In 1931, Cappiello tried his hand at Axa Margarine by depicting its source, in coconut oil. Three years later, Robys' attempt proved much more successful: a triumphant answer to the question, "Well, what do you do with it?" This work, with its triangular composition, placing the cube of Axa at its apex, is a semiotic masterpiece dedicated to the joy of cooking. The Axa brand, unfortunately, has since melted away.
