Not Whole Fence in Texas by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Not Whole Fence pays homage to the simpler days of baseball, of watching the great American past

ime through a wooden fence. Imagine a child, peeking through the knotholes with the impressionable canvas of youth, evoked by a sense of wonder and hope or devoted fans who cannot afford tickets, sneaking glances through small openings with playfully mischievous eyes, excited by the possibility of joyous victory or getting caught.

Circular Formations by Michael Jantzen

Article source: Michael Jantzen 

Circular Formations are a series of three functional art sculptures designed to be placed into a public venue such as a park and/or sculpture garden. Each one of the structures is made of painted steel and wood. All of them are primarily formed from the assemblage of eight-foot diameter circular rings. Some of the rings have been cut into portions of a circle, and others are assembled into the formations as full circles.

Dunes Bowl in Brera, Milan, Italy by Alessandro Isola

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Article source: Alessandro Isola

By taking simple everyday objects such as bowls and serving trays the design reinterprets them in a more contemporary form by morphing them together to create a sculptural piece.

The shape was inspired by organic, free flowing forms such as sand dunes.  The two concave sections are in different sizes to hold aperitif snacks, hors d’oesurves or fresh fruit.

Arteology in Auvergne Region, France by Atelier 37.2

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Article source: Atelier 37.2

The Nature in the volcanic region of Auvergne has something definitely sacred. It seems to be invisibly linked with the idea of art. Our approach, as artists, is to search this specific nature in order to let the fear, the mystery, the metaphysical and spiritual questioning appears from the volcanic memory.

Inhabitable Sculpture in Montreal, Canada By Jean-Maxime Labrecque

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Jean-Maxime Labrecque

The “inhabitable sculpture” project, which received two awards at the Grands prix du design 2011, is the result of four years of work executed by numerous fabrication and installation teams. Two premises were established by the client at the beginning of the project: “a space that people will find cold” and “living in an art gallery.” All designers hope, sooner or later, to obtain such a commission, which enables them to avoid subjecting their work to the obvious sacrosanct “warmth” obtained through wood.

“Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness” sculpture at the The Angel Building, London by Ian McChesney

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness is a stunning new sculpture by Ian McChesney for the Angel Building in London. The shape of the piece was generated by allowing treacle to fall from a spoon – the resulting form is then inverted. The unit comprises an oval seating area from which extends a narrow twenty two metre high spar – that’s over 5 double decker buses. The title is taken from the motto on the Lyles Black Treacle tin which, in turn is a reference to a story in the Old Testament. It is fabricated from carbon fibre which is both strong and very light enabling it to be incredibly slender. At the foot of the piece is a seating area upholstered in leather by designer Bill Amberg.

The piece was comissioned by developer Derwent London for the Angel Building, a new office development near the Angel underground station in Islington, London. The building was designed by architects AHMM.
