Ny artist and designer Misha Kahn’s playful signature design has manifested as a group of things to be used across the pool in the Miami Seashore Edition lodge.
Anything from pool floats to glass straws capabilities from the Bellyflop Collection, which was unveiled in the resort throughout Miami art week.
The barware series includes golden aluminium items like pitchers, ice buckets, cups and a tray, all decorated with coloured glass shapes that resemble toothy mouths. Delicate metal handles are attached to the pitchers and the tray to aid carrying.
Kahn’s established of 4 multi-hued glass straws have loops and bends, and also bumps and appendages that make them seem all the more surreal. Every one of the Bellyflop parts are created by hand in Turkey.
“The Bellyflop Collection features Misha Kahn’s interpretations on poolside and outdoor entertaining accessories that draw from his unorthodox manipulation of materials such as metals and glass,” said a description from Prospect NY, which collaborated with the artist to create the works.
Kahn is noted for making use of identified objects to develop his fantastical furnishings and sculpture items, elevating seemingly worthless resources as collectible structure.
His preceding performs incorporate a list of underwater creatures manufactured using “crap with the sea”, offered at The big apple’s Friedman Benda gallery in 2017, and also a cupboard fashioned of grass, trash and stained glass similarly observed on a Seaside.
The Bellyflop Collection made its debut during an event on 5 December 2018, which coincided with the Art Basel and Design Miami fairs, plus a host of other cultural programming across the city.
The cocktail reception with the Edition took place among the large inflatable and cushioned sculptures, included in vivid colours and tie-dye styles – akin to Individuals he produced for your Halloween social gathering at Brooklyn Inventive hub A/D/O before this 12 months.
