This publication accompanies the first-ever solo exhibition of works by Los Angeles-based designer David Wiseman (born 1981). Inspired by the rich classical history of decorative objects and sumptuous table settings, Wiseman explores a multilayered vocabulary of manmade and biomorphic forms such as a blossoming tree, a spider web or a glacier. His limited-edition designs range from place-card holders, vases and chandeliers to furniture and architectural installations. Constantly exploring new ways of working with media such as porcelain, metals and exquisite Czech crystal, Wiseman is extraordinarily hands-on, and his works extremely labor-intensive. He recently created installations for Christian Dior flagship stores in Shanghai and New York, and is soon to install a permanent environmental installation for the West Hollywood public library. A stunning overview of Wiseman's career to date, the publication reveals an artist of extraordinary ability and depth.
