Free Form & Beauty

Art and sculpture can be elegant, striking, breath taking, and evoke emotion. These elements have been breathing life into interiors for centuries. Whether the art is a stand-alone piece and the focal point of the space or the finishing touch to an elegant interior, it is the jewelry and celebration of individual expression, energy, thought, and reflection. 

 

Artist Guy Laramee creates zen-like landscapes of mountains, caves, and valleys. These nature evoking pieces are works out of books.

 

 

Kate MccGuire sculpts using hundreds of thousands of feathers. These structures eminate life and movement with almost a liquid like quality, pouring out of voids, nooks, and flowing along walls and floors. These pieces look as if they could come to life and have an amazing textural and vibrant quality. 

 

This sculpted cardboard interior was designed in Athens, Greece. Named “Papercut”, the project was a collaboration between the fashion designer and dARCH Studio. Eco-friendly materials were used to create a beautiful marriage between interior design, fashion, and the architectural elements within.

  

The work of Riusuke Fukahori creates an illusion of  life in motion. These artistic masterpieces are not real goldfish but carefully crafted paintings embalmed in plastic. The Japanese artist works with a technique: using thousands of layers of resin and the goldfish are painted on top of one another, and the result is a near-perfect reproduction of goldfish all swimming endlessly.

 

This 3-dimensional art installation defies gravity, suspending translucent formable material with slender metal cables anchored to the ceiling. 

This tree-like sculpture has a whimsical quality, breathing life, movement, and color into the room.    

Architect Anglo-Iraqi Zaha Hadid redecorated the Neil Barrett store in Tokyo, using a minimalist approach, playing with form, light, & shadow. These retail display structures were created out of Molding corian.

 

This man-made “forest” brings a frolicsome personality to a simple commercial lobby space. Both innovative and eco-friendly,  the flowing wood structure creates more intimate settings, allowing for more of an encompassing feel in a building lacking much architectural divisions of space.
