This weeks blog post will compare the current aesthetic in my ambient lighting sculpture based on tropical nature, minimalism and future tech with 20th century design movements more specifically Art Deco, Streamlining and Scandinavian Modern. To start of I will put my current design render for a refresher.
The Chrysler building inspired me to draw an Art Deco style of my design, even tho I personally don’t like it. I imagine these shapes would be gold on a black background.
Unlike Art-Deco I really like the Scandinavian Modern design movement. One of the aspects I like most about it its the use of simple shapes and materials that are easy to work with like wood. I envision the upper cylinder to be made from wood in the drawing bellow.
Lastly I chose Streamlining as a design movement I am not a big fan either. I tried to make it as aerodynamic as I could even though it wouldn’t need to be. For some reason I envision this to be made of some shiny sheet metal and it reminds me of classic American dinners.
