Marvel Studio's Black Panther Features Designs
Inspired By Split Grain Light Sculpture
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Split Grain creator Paul Foeckler's designs have inspired the Marvel Studios release Black Panther in its "Jabari Throne Room" scenes. The light sculptures on this set, inspired by Foeckler's designs, are a visually stunning creation conjuring an ancient yet futuristic aesthetic for fictional Wakanda.
Foeckler had a vision for realizing the powerful beauty of nature through minimalism and a twist of technology with his reclaimed wood light sculptures. His works have been sold around the world and have received critical acclaim. Colossal (thisiscolossal.com) - the premiere online blog for what's new in art has featured Split Grain multiple times including helping to launch the design's popularity in early 2013.
"Having my designs inspire the Jabari Throne Room scenes amplifies the reason I started Split Grain. My designs celebrate nature and its raw organic beauty through minimalism and add technology to elevate the form. I think my light sculpture designs help to capture the sense of the archaic and ultramodern both of which inspired the Wakanda fantasy. It is a true honor to have the set designers see this alignment of their vision and my works".
About Split Grain
Split Grain, the creation of Paul Foeckler celebrates nature using reclaimed wood and technology to reveal hidden elements in organic forms. Using a minimalist sensibility to find balance between nature and refined technology heightens the inherent qualities of both. The works allow reflection upon nature in both intimate and public contemporary spaces.
Split Grain light sculptures and steel suspension artworks include floor standing, tabletop and wall sculptures to enhance any thoughtful, contemporary space.
