Dform 3 Saucer

Fabulous light shade from dform featuring products made from flat sheet materials.  The method is simple however complex in appearance demonstrating interlocking die-cut wood veneer or plastic with layered surfaces creating pattern and shadow.  They are a new ‘warm’ trend in interior design.

Sketches of Frank Gehry

+Sketches of Frank Gehry currently showing at the Dendy Cinemas in Sydney.

Frank Gehry is that rare kind of architect who has garnered both critical acclaim and popular recognition. His designs dramatically blur the line between art and architecture; his sketches and models are the basis for dynamic structures and unpredictable interiors. Gehry’s friend, Sidney Pollack, directs this film; akin in nature to Gehry’s own impromptu, free-hand style, the two men appear on film together, capturing this shy, elusive artist and illuminating his innovative process–including expansive depictions of Gehry’s most important architectural wonders across the globe.
