Fishy lamps by Frank Gehry are Ethereal

These Frank Gehry fish lamps are otherworldly and ethereal. The pieces are currently on display at the Gagosian gallery. The fish lamps are Gehry's latest designs, set to be shown in Los Angeles and Paris.

Gehry first created the fish lamps in 1983 after being commissioned by the formica corporation to find new ways to use their new product, Colorcore. Working with the material led Gehry to the discovery that the broken pieces looked like fish scales. His fish-inspired designs and sculptures have continued to evolve and have even become part of the private collection of Jasper Johns.

Their scaly forms look discombobulated, displayed on raised platforms in these images. The fish lamps can also be fixed to poles or wall scones.
