"Also referencing the unique surface of a natural material, was Alex Rasmussen’s Lunar Console Table, presented by Edward Cella Art & Architecture. This mysterious console made entirely of anodized aluminum, is one of Rasmussen’s limited edition functional works where he has experimented with manufacturing processes to create innovative aluminum textures. Inspired by the experimental blue works of French post-war artist Yves Klein, Rasmussen manipulated a satellite image of the moon to create a loose interpretation of its surface. In order to keep it from feeling too literal, he used a high-tech digital program that took a compressed version of the image and converted it into a texture that was then applied to the surface."

"Ask any of the exhibitors at the FOG Design+Art fair about what makes this particular aesthetic celebration special, and the response is likely to be quick and nearly unanimous: it’s so uniquely San Francisco.

For the third year in a row, this four-day event – a collaboration with the San Francisco Musuem of Modern Art (SFMOMA) – sees galleries from across the US (centered, perhaps predictably, in San Fran and New York, with representation from LA, DC, Philadelphia, and Seattle), as well as London, Paris, and Mexico City, bring everything from small, take-homeable trinkets, to hands-on craft and highly polished installations, to the city’s Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. This mix of mediums across a range of creative eras makes for an eclectic selection that’s delightful as eye candy, but also demands a deeper look."
