Inspirational Design of the Week: Outdoor Constellation Wall

A fun, unique, and interactive outdoor light installation combining two of our favorite things — art + science! Created by LGA Architectural Partners for a family in Toronto, Canada, the firm depicted a starry night sky on the family’s garage door.

The design includes representations of the constellations Sagittarius, Scorpio, as well as Orion. The patterns were created using a laser-cutter, after which LED lights were installed  to illuminate the design from behind — the lights were fitted in the four-inch-deep cavity of the doors.

We absolutely love the installation, and what it adds to the outdoor atmosphere of this home. It’s a true conversation piece, that we’re sure will remain with them for many years. What are your thoughts on the design? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!

Inspirational Design of the Week: The "Centipede" Cinema

It’s kind of odd, but we like it! What do you think of this public cinema design? Built in 2012 on the streets of Guimarães, Portugal — the structure offers a unique experience for both movie goers, and design lovers. The project was thought up, and built by Colin Fournier from the Barlett School of Architecture, Polish artist Marysia Lewandowska, and London studio NEON.

The tiny cinema includes 16 tube-like openings for people to poke their heads into, and enjoy the show. Their combined protruding lower-bodies are what give the structure its “centipede” look. Dwellers are welcome to enjoy an hour-long film while inside the structure, which is made up of about 20 short trailers. Fun, innovative, and creative! We’re big fans.

Unique design is our forte! Have you checked out our DNA Portraits yet?

Amazing Chandeliers Made From Old Bike Parts

Stick to the old rule of thumb “reduce, reuse, recycle” and you just may end up making some cool art! These gorgeous chandeliers were customized and created by artistic duo Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock. The pair created six chandeliers in total, each one almost entirely made out of used bike parts.

What makes their work even more impressive, is their location of choice for the installation of the chandeliers. They chose to hang them beneath an underpass in San Antonio, Texas — the perfect urban spot to compliment their industrial look, and for the community to enjoy the public art display. At night, the chandeliers are illuminated with LED lights, and the bike parts illuminate the entire space with their patterned shadows. We think the results are absolutely beautiful!

An Installation of Colorful Masking Tape

Who would think that masking tape could be art? Well, art director and graphic designer Koji Iyama has made it just that. With his new installations across Japan, the latest arriving in the city of Sendai, Iyama has certainly been leaving his colorful mark.

His product of choice? Mt-masking tape. His setting of choice? Old warehouses with high ceilings create the perfect space for him to hang the rolls of tape. He covers the entire floor as well, and even proceeds to cover any objects in his way — bikes, tables, other installations. The result of his final design is pretty cool, and we can imagine very interactive for the people lucky enough to visit his presentations. What do you think of Iyama’s art ventures?
