chrissy angliker

best-yellowweb

i've been interested in chrissy angliker's work ever since i met her at the pratt student show last year. chrissy has a style all her own and definitely gives off that "i'm going to be huge" vibe (but in a very cool, unpretentious way). her latest piece is an experiment in lighting made with measuring tape. it's clearly still in prototype form but i think it's an interesting way to approach lighting with inexpensive and non-traditional materials. click here for more info on chrissy and her measuring light. [thanks, chrissy!]

I think this is an interesting idea, unfortunately this has been done before. A guy named Brian Jewitt from L.A. makes bowls from ticket stubs, and has done for quite some time. I don't mean to disparaging, but these young designers do have talent, and I would like to see a little more originality from them. In this day and age they cannot afford to look derivative.

but they're not stubs, they're measuring tape, right?

You are right, materials are different, but method and intentions are the same. And after all, both are reels of material. I do wish her success, however with a hint of caution.

similar method in that it involves a reel, but a completely different aesthetic (not to mention a completely different material).

I agree with anonymous. see Karyl Sisson's work here:

she also has used tape measures to shape cones. been there. done that.

Hello, this is Chrissy.
Thanks for the critique. Oh man, I don’t what to bite the style of Jewitt and Sisson….My main interest in these lamps was to compare the graphics that centimeters verses inches create (which is probably the one and only cool thing about having 2 different measuring systems).I would like to make it up to you… Give me a month or 2 and I’ll re-design this idea without “the coil”. The thing doesn’t have to be coiled …Stay tuned, I’ll keep you posted… Sincerely CA.-
