Part 21: Melting Wood - a must see

944 days ago by dakremer | 12 comments »

The Paris, France-based design team of Bonsoir Paris is made up of graphic designers, Rémy Clémente & Morgan Maccari. Along with their team they created Duramen, a series of sculptures, which began as wooden frames that are then reimagined into something indistinguishable. The sculptures create juxtaposition between the distorted nature of the designs themselves and their use of fine woods such as oak, fir, wenge, pear, and linden.

Part 24: Coolest coffee table ever?

905 days ago by dakremer | 5 comments »

Designer and architect Reinier de Jong has just released the versatile REK coffee table. The table grows and adapts to your needs. For example, when you’re not entertaining, perhaps you’d like to close it up, but when guests come over, you might want to move the sliding parts outwards to accommodate extra drinks and plates. Or, you can keep the sliding sections and store magazines and other things underneath. Read more at Design Milk: http://design-milk.com/rek-coffee-table-by-reinier-de-j...

Part 31: Wood + Screws = ART! You must see this!

864 days ago by dakremer | 9 comments »

Andrew Myers, the Artist How does this type of sculpture differ from your usual work?These pieces are definitely a departure from my normal artwork. For years I had been sculpting in bronze, doing figurative, narrative types of work. The screw art was born mostly because I was burnt out on the narrative work, but also because I’m always searching for a “better” sculpture. It has been hard for me to stick to one style...
