Gerry Judah was asked by BMW to come up with a sculpture, bigger and better than anything done before, to commemorate their centenary at Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, West Sussex. With over two hundred thousand visitors over one weekend, this is the global platform where the world’s most amazing motorsport machines are in evidence, static and dynamic. It is also where one can see a sculpture that each year is different, dramatic, exciting, uncompromising and quite frankly, spectacular! All designed for the past 19 years by Judah himself.

In the heart of Seattle, the recently revitalized South Lake Union neighborhood now boasts everything from top-notch dining to the brand new Amazon headquarters. As one of the fastest developing neighborhoods in the state of Washington, South Lake Union has also added luxurious living, recreational and artistic spaces. To stay on trend with the progressive theme, Banker Wire was chosen to help create a contemporary 20-foot wire mesh sculpture for a plaza in the heart of the neighborhood.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
