John Procario, Monumental Freeform Series (by Commission)
John Procario’s Freeform Series is available by commission in sizes ranging from intimate to monumental.
The pictured Procario‘s Monumental Freeform is now installed in the lobby of the Kaufman Orginization’s Nelson Tower at 450 7th Avenue, in New York City. This incredible hand-made, wood and LED interlocking sculpture measures an impressive 35 feet, spanning the length of the lobby. The first of its kind, Procario‘s sculpture is an impressive feat of technology and design. The building’s lobby was exquisitely designed by Design Republic.
Procario’s sculptural lighting is composed of micro-laminated, cold-pressed bent wood. Procario begins his process by twisting ribbons of paper to explore potential designs. However, rather than using these models to control the wood’s shape, he allows the wood to form the shape it pleases. In this way, the artistic process becomes a collaboration between the artist and the wood’s respective personalities. The outcome is an organic, fluid design balanced with a sense of motion.
