ATLANTApix: Marquis Sculpture

Marriott Marquis Tower lobby art

In the lobby of the Marriott Marquis Tower in downtown Atlanta is this unique bronze celebration of human socialization. Even more exciting is all of the other uber-cool art that will be at this location one week from today.

Kristofer Laméy, industrial designer, artist, and Georgia native, will be opening his new studio and showroom in the former space of the Museum of Design Atlanta (now located at 1315 Peachtree Street, across from the High Museum of Art) on Friday, April 1, 2011.

His work is phenomenal! In particular I love his "Sisters" project. The one-of-a-kind chandeliers incorporate steel and blown glass, as well as a healthy dose of engineering marvel. I love Chihuly, but I would rather have a Laméy, given the choice.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
