Delightfully Artistic Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

Earlier this year, the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills and Paris featured a unique exhibit of fish lamps created by one of America’s best architects Frank Gehry. It was about 25 years ago when Gehry originally thought of this artwork. At that time, he accidentally shattered a sheet of ColorCore laminate while working on a project for the Formica Group, the largest manufacturer of High Pressure Laminate. Gehry then saw the potential of the shards of colorful plastic to be formed as fish scales for his series of fish lamps by using metal framework.
