When I first saw the image from yesterday’s post on the carpet, I thought they were made of cardboard. I’ve always been a fan of the Frank Gehry “Easy Edges” furniture line. I had the idea to do the same thing about 10 years ago and then a few months later I found out that Gehry beat me to it in the 1970s.
Well, Frank Gehry launched his new jewelry collection this last summer and Tiffany’s commissioned Ball-Nogues to make the opening shin-dig look sharp. Uh. I think they succeeded. They made these gi-normous cardboard sculptures. amazing. It’s over 4000 layers of cardboard. yea, 4000. I love the texture of corrugated cardboard. I’ve always wanted to make sculptures out of it. Uline sells big sheets, but they’re not as cheap as you’d think.
Ball-Nogues has a nice illustration showing the dimension of the pieces.
