i was going through images I save as sources of inspiration and I noticed some very interesting similarities amongst the paints of tamara de lempicka (artist, 1898-1980) frank gehry’s (architect, 1928- ) guggenheim museum in bilbao (1997) and bmw’s mille miglia concept car (2006).

the way that de lempicka treated forms (hair, fabric) and the texture she was giving to them (shinny, as if made of metal) looks so similar to the way gehry treated the volumes of his titanium-covered building. mille miglia on the other hand is a car inspired by the the ’40s-era 328 coupe (a very close to art-deco period) and this probably justifies the similarities found between details in the work of de lempicka and bmw’s overall form language.

  3. Katty and Gary, thank you both for your comments. Gary, from time to time i will be posting things but i can not promise that this website will be updated as regularly as a “normal” design blog. Besides its nature isn’t like the one of a design blog but, as i state in the title, this website is a space to present some of my projects and any idea, question or source of inspiration i consider as worth mentioning.
