Frank Gehry is best known for designing¬†extraordinary¬†buildings, including the Guggenheim Museum in Spain, MIT’s Ray and Maria Stat Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Vitra Design Museum. The award-winning architect’s latest project is less grand in scale, but no less amazing.

Gehry revealed a series of intricate fish lamps, which are now on display at the Gagosian galleries in Paris and Beverly Hills. The lamp designs were first created between 1984 and 1986 using plastic laminate ColorCore. Gehry broke one of the laminate pieces, which shattered into a fish scale-like pattern.

The new series of Fish Lamps feature larger and more jagged shards of ColoreCore. The lamps can be fixed to the wall, or placed on a flat surface. They illuminate with a warm, soft glow and the shadows cast highlight the textured ‘scales’ and form of the fish.

The exhibition “The Fish is a Perfect Form” can be viewed until 14 February at Gagosian Beverly Hills, and until 9 March at Gagosian Paris. See some of the lamps on exhibit in the gallery below.
