‘The Diamond Boutique’. By “Creneau International”.


A diamond exhibition has been designed in Maasmechelen Village by Creneau International, and “It is a BEAUT”.  When they were assigned to create a design for a ‘Love the Diamond boutique’, this INCREDIBLE interior instructor gave life to one of the most artistic, colorful, and visually pleasing exhibitions we here at djstormsblog.com have seen to date. 

They started their design with the origin of the diamond: (crystallized) carbon.  Diamonds consist entirely of crystallized carbon. Carbon can only crystallize at extremely high temperatures and pressure; circumstances found 150 kilometers below ground. Crystallized carbon rises to the surface through volcano eruptions, sealed in volcanic rock.

The black rough stone that emerges from the heart of the earth has, after lots of grinding and polishing, a shiny core with many facets and colors. This is exactly what they see in the interior design. The walls are painted black and look like they’ve plastered them with carbon. At the center of the exposition an iridescent volume is shining in an array of colors and facets.  This can not be exemplified by photos.  This is TRULY a sight to behold.

Engraved Wine Chillers By Joe Doucet

Seeking to create more than just an object, design polymath joe doucet wanted to create a ritual. The series of wine chillers were commissioned by wallpaper for its annual handmade exhibit, and the final products were crafted by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbara, California. Placing a chilled bottle of wine inside one of the engraved containers ensures that it remains cool by preventing the loss of cold through convention, conduction and radiation. Based on the wind patterns of cold fronts that move around the globe, the grooved lines on the cases vary in depth as they wrap around the chillers.

The String Theory.


I never took to knitting.  One reason may be that it is accepted that you will have to rip out rows at some point in the process.  This alone drives me up a tree.  I never let perfection be the enemy of the good and knitting just doesn’t work that way.  I’d never have made it on the prairie.  Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe spins a yarn with these exciting sculptures.  Beautiful and precise. Homeboy’s just got a gift.

Louis Vuitton Animal Sculptures.


Louis Vuitton hosted a cocktail party on Monday night at the storied Paris taxidermy store Deyrolle to celebrate the launch of the My Monogram service on Small Leather Goods.  To set the mood, British artist Billie Achilleos transformed the maison’s signature wallets, coin pouches, belts, and bag hardware into a menagerie of animals.  The hardy armadillo, for instance, paid homage to the durability and quality of the leather, while the lively chameleon showed off LV’s wide spectrum of colors.

‘It Came From The Sky’ – The Embroidered Secrets of Maurizio Anzeri (Pt. 2)


In the post “The Emboridered Secrets of Maurizio Anzeri (Pt. 1)” I displayed some of the incredible works from Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri.  The works in the last post carried a primarily vintage style, these however, take his talents into the modern realms.  Shifting from his previous project to his current practice, Maurizio says that he is interested in everything a photograph represents. When travelling, he visits flea markets and collects photographs that are later transformed into pieces of art. His portraits maintain the quality of a photograph but then start to become three-dimensional something that prompted him to invent the term: ”photo-sculpture”. It is this three-dimensional element, achieved through embroidery and the form of intervention it brings that transforms the portraits into photo-sculptures.  Maurizio’s career is booming and growing and there is no stopping.  In Baltic, he is going to present 25 small portraits from the past, another 12 new pieces of embroidery and four sculptures. He was fortunate to work with great minds likeAlexander McQueen and Isabella Blow and confesses that he stayed in London because of the people he met.  He was picked up by Charles Saatchi, and exhibited at his gallery in the exhibition Newspeak: British Art Now, an exhibition that received great coverage and media attention.  Check out ‘It Came From The Sky’.

The Embroidered Secrets of Maurizio Anzeri. (Pt. 1)


Maurizio Anzeri, the Italian born artist from the city of Loano is known for his series of eerie portraits or photo-sculptures, (a term used by himself to describe his portraits)  Maurizio’s work will be presented this month at the Baltic  (25 June – 11 October 2011) and will mark his first solo show in a major UK institution. Check out this first gallery of his work.  I’ll be posting up a second later on today.
