Art Catalog(blue)1

Motorized Ikea sculptures

Let’s get arty with Jeff’s exhibition of sculptures of Ikea furniture.

It’s from an exhibition called Catalog that consists of 5 sculptures made from Ikea products. He says, “The Catalog (Blue Tables) are made from Lack tables, each one is cut and reassembled and includes a motorized leg that tilts the table gently up and down. The result is a wave-like motion.

Another piece, also part of this exhibition, an 8.5×11 foot section of “crumpled” Kvist bamboo floor. Sadly, I think Kvist will be discontinued. The piece also includes three live stalks of Dracaena ‘lucky bamboo’ that I picked up at the IKEA marketplace.”

    Wow those sculptures are phenomenal. I really like the Kvist floor one, it’s such a good idea. The bamboo makes it really quirky which i think is brilliant. I tell you if they ever sold any of those in ikea i’d be the first to buy one! Thanks for this brilliant post :)

    Allie, I agree.

    His projects are a trip – go look at the rest of them. Some of the videos aren’t active anymore, which is a bummer. I dig the simulated “shore.”

    @lichterspiele maybe that was his point!


  6. He felt for a typical missinterpretation, Lucky Bamboo has nothing to do with real Bamboo.

    But the floor looks funny.

  7. The sword says:

  8. These looks great. Getting a vibration mode is not as an task.
