Frank Gehry, one of the most prominent figures in architecture and design, has a knack for creating pieces that spark the imagination. His latest work is a series of fish lamps, housed at the Gagosian Gallery, that are an interesting addition to his legendary portfolio.
Inspiration struck Gehry when a sheet of ColorCore laminate shattered into smithereens. He envisioned the shards from the incident as fish scales and immediately began crafting the sculptures. Using a metal frame he applied the ColorCore fragments to create beautiful, glowing fish lamps. Frank Gehry was recently labelled “the most important architect of our age” by Vanity Fair, and these fish lamps prove that he’s still got it!
What do you think of these lamps? Are they line with the Gehry vision or a weak addition to his body of work?
