The undulating fixture displays how light travels from end to end through concave and convex glass.
Made from a single piece of glass, the fixture’s form almost disappears when lit, revealing the filament of light that beams horizontally from each end. When the light is off, it becomes a sculptural piece of art that can be used indoors or outdoors. Photos by Pablo Gomez Ogando.

Brier Patch, 2018 (detail)

Hugh Hayden was one of the break-out stars of the Frieze Art Fair early this month, where White Columns presented his picnic table sculpture created out of fallen Manhattan trees. And now through June 2nd, just a block south of the Whitney Museum, you can see two newer works that benefit from the larger space and fewer crowds.

Brier Patch, 2018

“Brier Patch” is composed of 6 school desks that appear inseparably interwoven by their own outgrowths. Hugh notes his intention to create “visible, unifying space that is at once protective and impenetrable”. His work is absolutely a mix of oppositions: drawing you near while blocking you out, recalling

                                An Icelandic designer based in London, <a href="http://www.theodoraalfredsdottir.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Theodóra Alfreðsdóttir</a> showcased her latest project entitled <a href="http://www.theodoraalfredsdottir.com/#/mould/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer"><em>Mould</em></a> at this year’s 10th anniversary of DesignMarch in Iceland.
Molds usually have one purpose which is to create multiples of a desired object, and so the making of the mold is often very painstaking to ensure perfect duplications. However, after they are used, these molds are pushed to the sidelines when the focus is shifted to the new object. Theodóra wanted to see if it was possible to extend the life of a mold beyond its original intent and make it as equally desirable to the object it creates. With Mould, her molds get a second life as colorful, abstract sculptures. The molds are made out of MDF and the cast objects are made of Jesmonite. For the next stage of this investigation, Theodóra wants to explore more industrial processes, like slip cast ceramics and

                                Last week, New York City hosted the annual “Armory Art Fair Week” – a four day race (literally running) to view over 600 galleries spread across 8 fairs. In search of something I’ve never seen before, these 9 sculptures took the prize for &#8220;most innovative&#8221;:

Gustavo Dia

Alien-landscape-like collages by Gustavo Dia begin as excruciatingly detailed drawings (I’m told he sharpens his mechanical pencil every few seconds when he works). These new works translate his designs into laser-cut paper. Presented by Sicardi Gallery of Houston Texas, at The Armory Show.

Nicole Wermers, Shell Ashtray 2018 (detail)

“Shell Ashtray” by sculptor Nicole Wermers implies the humorous and tragic progression of sea shells. Presented by Jessica Silverman Gallery of San Francisco at The Armory Show. Note: This is NOT a functional object – the cigarettes (one stained with red lipstick) are part of the sculpture.

                                In January 2015, Ellsworth Kelly gifted the <a href="https://blantonmuseum.org/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Blanton Museum of Art</a> a design concept called <em>Austin</em>, the artist’s first and only free-standing building and one of his last masterpieces before he passed away in December 2015. After nearly three decades, the project is now completed, standing on-campus at the University of Texas in Austin.

From the start, Kelly weighed in on many details of the building, from the large limestones that are anchored to the building down to the grout color choices. The design of the 2,715-square-foot-building is based on a sketch that he made of a chapel in France, the country he was fascinated with for its Romanesque and Cistercian architecture. Similar to his works on canvas, Austin is a majestic study of light

                                The kitchen island has become one of the most utilitarian spaces in a home, moving from just a place for cooking to a place to entertain and gather around amongst friends and family. As the first part of their 2018 collaboration, leading quartz manufacturer <a href="http://www.caesarstoneus.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Caesarstone</a> and multi-design practice <a href="http://www.snarkitecture.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Snarkitecture</a> have taken the main hub of the home and put it front and center in their <a href="http://www.caesarstoneus.com/newsroom/press-releases/caesarstone-presents-altered-states-by-snarkitecture-at-fuorisalone-2018-milan/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Altered States</a> installation. Inspired by water, a main ingredient in any kitchen, Snarkitecture created four kitchen islands – titled Ice Island, Water Island, Steam Island and Play Island – using Caesarstone surfaces that explore water’s “changing states” in both the kitchen and nature.
Ice Island is composed of 37 topographic layers of Caesarstone’s Vanilla Noir 5100 surface. A sphere of ice serves as a focal point before drawing your eyes towards the layers, colors and textures of the island. Water Island is made with 32

The numbers for 2018&#8217;s show are not in yet, but it felt bigger and better than ever before with Guest of Honor Paola Navone. &#8220;Paola Navone is one of today&#8217;s most interesting and outstanding designers,&#8221; says Cecilia Nyberg, the show&#8217;s project area manager. &#8220;We admire her creativity and eclectic aesthetic, as well as the amazing breadth of her output. Whatever she chooses to do, she always manages to create a unique atmosphere.&#8221; And her installation (above) was indeed a riot of color and curiosities.

Medieval Art… A Contemporary Experience

                                An unexpected collision (and rare treat) is happening right now at the center of the contemporary art world: <a href="http://www.luhringaugustine.com/exhibitions/of-earth-and-heaven-art-from-the-middle-ages" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Medieval Art</a>. In a surprising pairing between London dealer <a href="https://www.samfogg.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sam Fogg</a>, the “world’s leading dealer in art of the Middle Ages” and the <em>always</em> contemporary New York gallery <a href="http://www.luhringaugustine.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Luhring Augustine</a>, art lovers of every sort now have a unique opportunity to LITERALLY see centuries-old paintings, sculptures, and architecture in a different light.

Detail of “A Schöne Madonna” Salzburg, Austria. C.1430

The “big deal” here is that Medieval art, in my experience, has always been displayed in an environment that mimics it’s original setting to a certain degree: low light, dark walls, and relatively crowded. This exhibition however, aptly titled “Of Earth and Heaven“, exists not only in a

10 Modern Gold Accessories That Will Make You Fall in Love with Gold Again

                                Don&#8217;t call it a comeback, it&#8217;s been here for years (it&#8217;s impossible not to channel LL Cool J&#8217;s <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimZj8HW0Kg"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mama Said Knock You Out</a> when saying that line)&#8230; But it&#8217;s true – Gold has been around forever and while it never went anywhere, it seemed to have taken a backseat to other metals in recent years, like copper and rose gold. And now, it&#8217;s making its way back to the forefront in the design world, which has us exploring some fun ways to bring it back into our homes. Take a look at some gold accessories that will help you take a dip back into the gold pond.

Chromatic Numerical Sculptures Inspired by Josef Albers from Leonardoworx

                                Taking inspiration from iconic 20th century artist Josef Albers and his use of colors, digital artist Leonardo Betti of <a href="http://www.leonardoworx.com/blog/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Leonardoworx</a> created a series of abstract numbers made from colorful plexiglass. With varying sizes of square and rectangular pieces of custom plexiglass, Betti arranges them in such a way that colors change depending on what colors are in front of or behind. The results are a new spin on numerical typography, taking it from 2D to 3D with layers that create something you might not pick up on at first glance. When you learn they are actually numbers, the <a href="https://www.behance.net/gallery/60036433/ALBERS-NUMBERS"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Albers Numbers</a> make you take a second look to appreciate the thought and process behind creating them.
