Bathed in White Light…

…I wonder what artist Doug Wheeler’s lighting installation, titled D-N SF 12 PG VI, does to one’s senses…do your senses shut down…or go into full throttle? Stunning…

Doug Wheeler’s, D-N SF 12 PG VI, is installed for The Illusion of Light exhibition at Palazzo Grassi – an 18th century residence situated on Venice’s Grand Canal that now hosts contemporary art shows.

Aero…

…a nice segue from my last post, Does It Float?…Los Angeles based, West of West, created an experimental surfboard; Aero. A board built around the streamlined image of speed. The classic outlines of a planing hull blend with an asymmetrical split tail. The top is minimal while the bottom is extensively contoured…

Ridges and valleys emerge from the bottoms surface, forming a new topography that reacts to speed and flow in unique ways. Aero was built for and displayed at the Architecture and Design Museum of Los Angeles…

Let’s Go Into Town…

…I’ll be happy to say it…in my opinion, Pitsou Kedem Architect always gets it right.  Tel Aviv Townhouse 4 consists of mainly earthy and neutral tones that are expressed through both the structure and the furniture…with a pleasant dash of color.  I find this minimalist residence to be hypnotic…I want to experience every clean line…and the landscaping is simple yet magical.  This residence is situated behind a gated entrance, and is tucked between two unassuming apartment complexes…

Spectacular…

…I must admit, I’m a jaw dropper…I wear my joy and delight on my sleeve.  Below are three spectacular spaces that make my jaw hit the floor!…

Koro House

Wooden slats add a sculptural ceiling and cast shadows like a sundial across the central living room of this hexagonal home, Koro, located in Toyota, Japan, by  Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates.  The sculptural ceiling decoration is made from timber battens that line the rafters, creating an ever-changing pattern of light and shadow on the walls as the sun moves across the sky. Truly beautiful…instantly turns a home into a gallery, yes?

Dior’s Haute Couture Show

The Dior show, Paris, took place in a simple cylindrical white pavilion, located among foliage in the gardens of Musée Rodin. Designed by creative director, Raf Simons, white orchids with pink centres covered the walls. Stunning.

BIG Maze

BIG, the firm led by architect Bjarke Ingels, developed the form of this maze by combining styles of mazes throughout history, from ancient Greek labyrinths to European hedge mazes and modern American corn mazes. Brilliant! The BIG Maze opened to the public at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on Friday and will remain in place until 1 September. It will be followed up by a wider exhibition of BIG’s work, which will open in January 2015.

Master of the Universe…

…the Magnus Celestii installation by Joseph Walsh is fitting for any Master of the Universe to sit down and create…I can just imagine one’s ideas swirling onward and upward…

Irish designer Joseph Walsh never ceases to amaze us with his otherworldly furniture designs, which seem to have touched earth directly from another world where imagination reigns supreme. As part of the annual design exhibition at the New Art Centre (Roche Court, Wiltshire, UK), the Joseph Walsh studio has created a site-specific work that explores the connection between form and function whilst entering new territory in the studio’s work so far. Made out of layers of ash wood that spiral upwards from floor to ceiling, the Magnus Celestii installation (named after the Latin words for ‘great’ and ‘heavenly’) constitutes the largest piece that the  studio and workshop of Joseph Walsh has ever produced. Emerging out of a desk form, the sculptural work also expands outwards as it almost engulfs the  entire one-roomed space, to eventually come to a standstill in the form of a large shelf which hangs on the space’s side wall.

As part of the Design Show exhibition at the New Art Centre, the Magnus Celestii will be on display until 06 July 2014. For more information please visit the gallery’s website.

Joseph Walsh (born in 1979) founded his studio and workshop in 1999 in County Cork, Ireland. He is a self-taught designer and furniture maker who is known for realising one of a kind and limited edition pieces.
