Must see: Christo invites public to walk on water
The New York-based, Bulgarian artist Christo is to create three kilometres of shimmering yellow walkways on Lake Iseo in Italy that will link two of its islands to the mainland for the first time.The Floating Piers will be Christo’s first major project since 2005’s The Gates, in New York, and the first since the death of his wife and long-time collaborator, Jeanne-Claude. The Floating Piers—fully funded by sales of the artist’s work—cost a reported €10m and will be in place for only 16 days in June before being dismantled and recycled.
Must Have: DESIGN CROSSOVER: PIET MONDRIAN
Piet Mondrian is undeniably one of the great designers who’s work has crossed over into multiple disciplines of design, specifically his artwork Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow.
There’s no denying what the inspiration was for this swimsuit design by Sarah Schofield. There is clearly tension between these lines, which were believed to express different intensities of energy for Mondrian’s artwork.
While most of us don’t have the time to paint our nails like this, let alone have them done for us, they really do represent a work of art. I’m no stylist, but these nails would look best paired with a simple black dress to allow them to steal the show.
Who says art has no place in sports?! These Nikes tell a different story. With color blocking, inspired by Mondrian, these versatile kicks should be a staple in everyone’s closet.
