Laser Cut Love, Part 1 : Wall Decor

Beautiful "Silhouettes" by Andrew Tanner Design

I am so inspired by all wonderful laser cut design I am seeing lately. Hopefully we will have a few projects of our own up soon. In the past, David has made beautiful mobiles and jig-saw cut screens, and the laser cutter at school opens a whole new range of possibilities.

I love the these laser cut mirrored acrylic Cuckoo Clocks by Brooklyn Based, Klaus Rosburg of Sonic Design. I especially love that the second clock is comprised of two separate pieces, both slightly offset from the wall, creating a whole new dimension playing on light and shadows, which could change with the time of day. (Available online at elsewares)

I've been seeing this gorgeous "birds of a feather" mobile by Lost Angeles based designer Helen Ige, in some of my favorite shoppes around Chicago. The walnut veneer wood hangs beautifully as a mobile, and the laser cut origins are celebrated with the "pop-out" packaging, which can be reused for "stenciling or other art projects."

This may be purchased online at elsewares

design*sponge recently did a post about Australian designer Miranda Moreira of bride and wolfe (above) who creates these magical laser cut designs.
