25,000 Chopsticks Create Stunning Wooden Clouds
User Rating: / 4

Los Angeles' new Tsujita Restaurant features a fantastic ceiling made from 25,000 chopsticks carefully arranged to look like a pixellated sky. Designed by Japanese Architect Takeshi Sano, the Cumulus clouds’ formations were inspired by views of the sky from the Izumo Shrine - the biggest shrine in Shimane prefecture, Japan.

Architect Takeshi Sano sought to create a beautiful and mysterious atmosphere influenced by traditional Japanese design. To do this he integrated an incredible ceiling art piece with the restaurant’s interior. By calculating the focal length between the eye line and the wooden sticks and creating different distances between them, the architect was able to design a mysterious cloud-like illusion above the clientele’s heads.

User Rating: / 1

Taking inspiration from her time spent studying dairy farming, Finnish sculptor Miina Äkkijyrkkä creates these awe-inspiring monstrous cow sculptures from recycled used cars. The Helsinki-based artist collects old cars from dealers across the country, carefully selecting colorful scrapped vehicles to become part of the sculptural herd.

The award-winning artist has been working with cows and studying art for almost 50 years. It is no wonder then that she has fused both worlds to create these immense scrap metal structures. Miina shapes huge vehicle parts become sections of the cows, arranging their limbs and heads in different positions.
Miina honors the inspiration for her art, paying tribute to her ‘models’ (cows) on her website with a series of photos. She clearly knows the cows inside out: the huge metal sculptures abstractly resemble the living creatures.
