"This Nature-Focused Design Book Is the Perfect Lockdown Escape...David Wiseman’s sumptuous new monograph is here to delight." —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
"If you haven’t heard of [David Wiseman] it’s because his imagination often runs wild behind closed doors. He transforms clients’ private residences into calming oases, bringing the outdoors in with magnificent, metal fireplace screens and sprawling, flowering branch installations that appear rooted in the architecture. To experience them is to be lucky enough to receive a personal invitation to these homes—or order a copy of Wiseman’s eponymous new book (Rizzoli, available April 2020).
The tome doubles as a visual feast of pattern. “I have always been drawn to nature in my work,” he says. “And within the natural world, magnificent patterns abound, from crystalline structures to honeycombs, and cell formations to ocean swells.” His motifs transcend even these, calling on decorative wood carvings, mosque adornments and more across cultures and time periods."
"FORCE OF NATURE: Artist David Wiseman’s abstractions of natural forms forge bonds as strong as those he creates in his enchanted world of bronze, porcelain and plaster." —LALA MAGAZINE
