lace fence.



I don't know much about this lace fence, other than it's a fence that looks lacy. And although I realize that by making such a painfully obvious statement I'm simultaneously shattering my dream of becoming a private investigator in the near future, I don't care.

Besides, I always wanted to be an astronaut.

that's a pretty amazing fence - i really love it! and, gumshoes and astronauts are kind of similar - they sit down a lot while looking for new things in places they really shouldn't. kind of like someone i know ;).

Chain link gets a makeover. And then some!

A Print A Day said...

this never fails to impress. i love it. it makes the chain link less cold looking.

hrsj said...

hmm, this piece seems to be saying something about barriers to me. you've shared another thought provoking piece.

Megan said...

Oh my gawd, i love this!

Sally said...

If only all chain-link fences could look like this!

Cherryskin said...

This one gave *me* "inspiration hives"! Amazing.

Karen said...

That's so pretty -- I love it when there is something so dainty and beautiful in the middle of something so cold and industrial. Very cool. :)

Esti said...

A beautiful fence, although it sounds a little conradictory to me :)

pj said...

I wish all fences looked like this..although i'd probably never get to wherever I was trying to go.

Interesting...

LorraineDesign said...

Ok, I feel redundant saying it, but "Wow! This is awesome!" Is it really wire though? Because it sure looks lacy!

franki durbin said...

I've never seen such a thing. How unusual!

Priya Mani said...

Its by Demakersvan. Isnt it beautiful. They have made other such lace inspired installations. The recent one they are working for is for a public space and huge metal laces are being made in their workshop in India. To see more take a look at Wall Paper mag of a few months ago

Priya--- thanks a TON for this info! :)

Pedro Lucena said...

Amazing work!
It is a brilliant idea.

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
