Stone Gate is a piece of work designed by Raffaello Galiotto and presented by Lithos Design for the first time at the 100% Gravity exhibition in Verona, Italy, for which designers and manufacturers were asked to experiment on the field of natural stone gravity: the circle is amazingly made of dry-laid hewn stones, each one weighing 5 quintals, bound together in a self-supporting structure only through compression.
British artist Luke Jerram has completed this 17 foot tall solar powered kinetic chandelier consisting of 665 glass radiometers, which shimmer and flicker as they turn in the sunlight. Altering their speed with the subtle changes in lighting conditions, the vanes of each radiometer speed up and slow down throughout the day. Commissioned by the Bristol and Bath Science Park the artwork is on permanent display there.
You can see a video of the chandelier in action on YouTube – here.
Based upon the iconic final scene of the film The Italian Job, this feat of engineering sees a full-sized replica coach bus balanced on the De La Warr Pavilion’s rooftop.
