Item details

Custom designed for the west coast headquarters of the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), this piece created an iconic identity for the ground floor lobby. Guests arriving to the building are greeted by a bold statement artwork that is suspended from the skylight beams overhead. The color scheme was guided by the agency’s signature color of red and complimented by analogous hues arranged in a radial gradient. The layers of the strands draping from each skylight beam are cut to a 23 degree angle to echo the angle of the staircase located directly below.

Meet the Creator

"Geckler is known for her large-scale architectural installations constructed with flagging tape, a colorful plastic ribbon used primarily on construction sites, which she arranges to create massive immersive environments that are located in the territory between art, design, and craft. Taking the form of brightly colored, mathematical drawings in space, Geckler’s work is custom-tailored to the architectural elements that are unique to each exhibition venue - where skylights, staircases, and soffits become focal points for her painterly geometric environments.

Megan Geckler is an American artist (b. 1975, Abington, PA) living and working in Los Angeles.
