screen time by Unknown

We appreciate the usefulness of a well-designed screen that is both aesthetically pleasing and a powerful workhorse. Need to divide a space without constructing permanent walls? Either a freestanding or ceiling hung partition could be the answer. Maybe you want to obscure an unsightly view of the neighbor’s garage. A screen that lets light filter through while obscuring the view could enhance your living space. How about providing some privacy with acoustic benefits in an open office layout? Yes, there are partitions for that too. We even found a screen with built-in storage. Enjoy perusing some of our favorite screen time options.

white balloons in covent garden by Unknown

French artist Charles Pétillon unveiled his Heartbeat Installation at Covent Garden earlier this week and we fell in love right away. The latest in his Invasions series, Heartbeat is 100,000 white balloons that create a cluster above the lively and historic Covent Garden Market Building. The artist wanted to, "represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area – connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London's life."

Mirror Labyrinth NY by Unknown

New York's Brooklyn Bridge Park is offering whimsical and interactive installations as part of an exhibition by Public Art Fund. This exhibit encourages viewers to touch, walk through, and engage with the art, allowing viewers to overcome the typical distance expected at venues like a museum. In addition to the Mirror Labyrinth featured above, the exhibition includes Appearing Rooms, a room enclosed by walls made of jets of water, and several unique park benches.

Pull Some Strings by Unknown

This week we're loving this installation by Atelier YokYok at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Cahors, southwest France. Called Les Voûtes Filantes, or The Shooting Vaults, this stunning installation was created by stretching blue string between different thin metal arch frames typical of Gothic architecture to echo the style of the cathedral. The strings merge into the shapes of the arches, creating beautiful tunnels that are a whimsical play on light and space. Read more about the project here!
