I love Jody Morlock's quirky & creative sculpture (blog1/27/10)!!!
And this installation at Todd English's Ça Va Restaurant
 is absolutely over-the-top!!!!

I was honored when Jody took a morning off from her day-job , she is the "make-up maven" at The Daily Show, and gave me a tour of her work which plays an integral part in this stunning restaurant, designed by Jeffrey Beers International. Beers, a collector of Jody's work, commissioned her to create the "art element" for the restaurant. By adding her eccentric twist to vintage and new cooking utensils, from juice presses & coffee pots to forks & wine corks ...... Jody has created a new world of "fantastical foodie sculptures!!!"

 

Jody describes her process far better than I can ...... "I have hungry eye, and when they are not busy devouring the colored world before me,my brain is busy cutting, rearranging, shaping, structuring, fusing, drawing, dreaming, and grouping the beauty and the chaos of this complicated world!!!"

Dilmos Gallery, Milan is one of the foremost contemporary design galleries in the world. Focusing on a broad cross section of innovative and exciting designers, Dilmos selects works that fully represent the design philosophies of each createur and act as a window into his/her deepest thoughts. Communication of concept is often more important than function, a philosophy clearly present in this last exhibition.

 

I have seen extraordinary work by amazing designers  ...... 
have been taught to think about the process,
as well as the final result ...
learning a very valuable lesson!!!

Mike Bouchet's "Argento Libre" @ Cumulus Studios!!!!!

Newsletter_Design_Miami2.jpg
Nathalie Karg's Cumulus Studios, known for it's collaborations with contemporary artists to create functional outdoor objects (blog 8/26/09, 12/8/09, 12/22/10), is presenting their newest designs at Design Basel next month. 

This collection is created by sculptor Mike Bouchet, who has taken the ultimate consumer object, a shopping cart, and altered it to create the ultimate leisure object ...... a sun lounger!!! Bending the front and back panels of the shopping cart backwards or forwards, cutting the sides off, and re-mounting the child's seat as a head rest has resulted in this wonderful "chaise sculpture." The zinc- plated steel chair also comes a weatherproof foam cushion upholstered in a print designed by the artist. 

In addition, there are four other designs available, each intended to add a different level of comfort and functionality. They include the chaise lounge with an umbrella, an armless chaise, a double chaise or love seat, a side table, and one with a speaker attached to connect an iPod.

Cumulus Studios does it again ......
Mike Bouchet's "Argento Libra" is absolutely divine!!!!
I can't wait to have all five pieces on my patio!!!
Soooooo chic!!!
