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.

Fog…

…alright, Mother Nature, Chicago had an unusually brutal winter…may we please have an agreeable summer?  Chicago has been covered by creeping fog coming off Lake Michigan for the past several days.  It reminded me of a Kōnosu City, Saitama Prefecuture, Japan, residence…Distance of Fog by StudioGreenBlue.  Actually, fog never looked so alluring…

the project incorporates metal screens to provide sense of privacy within the open-plan space…

but the sun should be peeking through by noon…

Cathy Azria…

…it is June…and there is no need for blazing fires to keep us warm…we do, however, have an opportunity to turn our fireplaces into works of art.

Artist/designer Cathy Azria was born in Tunisia and lived in France until she came to London in 1980 to study sculpture. Living in London ever since and working for private clients, architects and designers, she designs sculptural installations for interiors. She draws her inspiration from natural materials, organic forms, the interplay of light and a conviction that what is functional in the home can also be beautiful. Fire is the area interesting her most at the moment. She began to design fire installations when her search for a contemporary fireplace for her own home proved fruitless. Since then, she has been exploring the whole concept of fire and light, using metal both for its sculptural potential and for the way that it responds to heat, transforming into glowing forms.

Cathy never has and will never, mass-produce. She works by establishing a train of thought, then developing and refining it in response to each client’s requirements. Every piece is therefore unique, signed and numbered by its creator.

Arete…

my favorite word in the dictionary, arete, means excellence.  André Simón of A/STUDIO , submitted his recent work, MIKA 350. The attention, care, and sensitivity used by Andre, both in the design and in the film, is beautiful.  The word, arete, is fitting…André captures the employment of tools, the utilization of sturdy machinery, the sound of rain, and the falling of wood shavings to tell the story of the master craftsman.

DESIGNED BY ANDRÉ SIMÓN…PRODUCED BY A\STUDIO…PHOTOGRAPHY BY LINO ESCURIS
