Yesterday’s post about British lighting designer Jeremy Cole inspired me to write about another brilliant artist and inventor, David D’Imperio. I can clearly remember the first time I saw David’s work, it was at the Eclipse Gallery in Bar Harbor, Maine. His designs were organic in form yet machine-like in craft. Timeless grace for the 21st century. Like Jeremy, David is inspired by nature ~ he spent many teenage summers exploring the coral reefs of the Florida Keys. That fascination with sea life and organic form greatly influenced his work. I am most impressed with his new line of lightweight suspended aluminum designs. My fantasy would be to pair a rustic farmhouse table with one of the linear suspensions. The warm and rough complimenting the cool and industrial. It would be a match made in heaven! Like all great design, David’s work defines form and function. Sculpture that seems to defy gravity ~ superior quality of light that is both functional and beautiful. Bravo!
