‘euphony’ by los angeles-based collaborative design and fabrication studio ball nogues is a permanent architectural installation at the recently opened music city center in nashville, tennessee, america. completed in may 2013, the piece is featured in a large atrium space visible from the exterior of the building. designer benjamin ball is known for exploring the intersection of architecture, art and product design through physical modeling and the use of digital and more traditional forms of production, as seen in this latest creation. the spiral form gently curves its way down the high void. made from intricately crafted beaded pieces, the form is at once gentle and bold. the contrasting elements reflect a soft, glowing light from the large full height windows.
