New Resin Mushroom Lamps Embedded with LEDs on Driftwood by Yukio Takano

November 1, 2016

Japanese artist Yukio Takano (previously) has a knack for recreating the delicate properties of mushrooms with dyed resins illuminated from the inside with hidden LED lights. The electrical components are then hidden inside real driftwood bases that sometimes incorporate a fancy retro “on/off” switch. Takano first exhibited his lights 12 years ago and they now disappear as fast as he creates them. Unfortunately, the pieces are too delicate to ship overseas, so he only produces and sells them locally.

You can see a behind-the-scenes tour of his studio here (in Japanese) and see more photos of his more recent works on Tokyobling, Silver Shell Gallery, and ocasionally on his blog.

Italian artist Annaluigia Boeretto (aka Annalù) imagines a world filled with liquid, where the pages of books or the petals of flowers seem to splash in every direction. The Venice-based artist works primarily with a form of resin to cast the delicate pools of water and glassy elements that comprise each sculpture. Annalù has an upcoming solo exhibition at East West Fine Art starting October 1, 2016, and you can see more of her work on Instagram. (via Lustik)

Furniture designer Alexandre Chapelin (previously) wows us again with this new pair of tables that mimic a cross-section of an underwater reef. The Saint Martin-based artist uses natural stone encased in a translucent blue resin to “bring the ocean into your living room.” You can see more views of the new tables on Instagram.

The jeweler Secret Wood (previously) has been producing even more miniature cities and landscapes, each ethereal universe living inside a resin geometric dome on top of their handmade wooden rings. In addition to buildings set against swirling skies, there are also works that contain tiny flowers, pieces that will eternally live on top of one’s finger. You can see more one-of-a-kind rings on their online store, Instagram, and Facebook. (via My Modern Met)

Formed from wood, resin, and beeswax, Canadian jeweler Secret Wood forms tiny worlds within the space of a finger. These environments contain everything from snowcapped mountains to deep blue lagoons, appearing like tiny snow globes atop one’s hand. Like a gemstone, each ring has an angular surface, refracting the scenes carefully placed within. Every piece is completely handmade, ensuring that no two rings are exactly alike. You can see more of the jeweler’s rings on their online store and Facebook. (via My Modern Met)

1,400 Square Feet of Candy-Colored Resin Layered Onto the Floor of a German Museum

Painter Peter Zimmermann has moved his colorful hues from canvas to floor in his latest exhibition “Freiburg School,” at the Museum für Neue Kunst in Freiburg, Germany. The installation is composed of bright blue, pink, and peach resin that appears like a candy-colored lagoon beneath the feet of museum-goers. This resin covers more than 1,400 square feet, layered in fluid patterns that subtly reflect Zimmerman’s abstract works on the walls. These pieces are also multi-layered— oil paintings that symbolize digital media motifs, a theme that has begun to often influence contemporary painting.

“When I realized my first floor piece about eight years ago, it represented an attempt to break with the shiny surface of the synthetic resin works,” said Zimmermann in a conversation with German journalist Till Briegleb. “The fact that visitors actually walk on it necessarily means that the surface will get scratched, destroyed. It develops a kind of patina as a result. Trainers leave scuff marks, high heels leave scratches. All of which are all interesting relicts…. I think that these traces correspond to the brush strokes of the oil paintings.”

Zimmermann was born in 1965 in Freiburg, and “Freiburg School” is his first large solo exhibition that has been exhibited in his hometown. You can sit, step, and stare into his immersive installation through June 19th, 2016. (via Designboom)
