Creative Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

Info 1
Frank Gehry is one of America’s best known architects. His award winning designs can be found around the world and have gained him the honor of being called the most significant American architect of our generation. Frank Gehry has a another passion, Fish. Over 25 years ago when Frank was working on a project for Formica, he shattered a sheet of ColorCore laminate. Instead of fretting over the damage, Frank’s creative mind kicked into high gear seeing the shards of colorful plastic as fish scales. Soon he had created a series of Fish Lamps by using metal framework and the ColorCore shards that are treasured works of art traveling from museum to museum. Recently, the 80+ year old architect created a new series of Fish Lamps, once again using ColorCore from Formica.
