  • Italian designer Ruggero Asnago's Neritagli collection shows how flat 2D objects can be used to create unique 3D stories. As design often does, the project naturally evolved from its original intent. He started crafting the creatures simply with scissors and paper, creating small imaginary animals for fun. He saw the potential in the objects, and referenced Munari's idea of "sculture da viaggio" (portable design) as inspiration.

  • I would love to see these works in person. The contrasts are intriguing—the dwarfing of the the room to the sculptures, those to the viewer, and the organic vs. the synthetic material and color. The collection, by Jim Hodges, is currently showing at New York's Gladstone Gallery.

  • Daniel Arsham is an artist hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, (the Cleve!) and living and working between New York and Miami. He designs in a variety of mediums and categorizes his work into two, three or four dimensions. My favorite pieces come from the third dimension, where his sculptural works look simultaneously natural and unnatural, appearing sculpted, grown, or eroded and depend upon their environments for context and dimension.

  • Sydney Cash is a New York sculptor who has pioneered techniques in glass manipulation to create his installation designs in light and shadow. The sculptures are dependent upon a variety of factors, such as angle, light and environment, and Sydney sees their creation as more of an evolution than a strict or strategic plan. It's pretty amazing how crisp and artistic the lines can be through an "analog" filter.
