The weathervane collection is an imaginative mix of talent and inspiration, uniquely expressed by two of two of foremost design firms. These one of a kind weathervanes are exquisite enough to be used as indoor sculptures, as well as their customary niche upon the roof, deck, porch and garden.
Smart Design Lightning Bolt Weathervane 1992
Smart Design is a New York based industrial design company known for being versatile, clever and avant-garde. Not surprisingly, Smart Design has created a weathervane that is boldly dramatic, with comic strip symbolism. Their fantastic creation is a flashy, gold lightning bolt, with zigzags and points. To offset the jagged outline of the bolt, the directional was designed in the shape of a cloud, which is engraved with a single “N”, representing north. This exciting and playful weathervane makes an electric and daring statement. It measures 25″ in height and 20 1/2″ in length.
Takenobu Igarashi Whale Weathervane 1992
Takenobu Igarashi is a designer and sculptor of international notability. His work is prominently displayed in the permanent design collection of MoMa, New York, as well as in other museums and universities throughout the world. Igarashi, impassioned by the environmental movement, selected the whale as his motif because of its significance in the crusade to save the earth. The color of this simple and beautiful weathervane is a washed slate-blue. It measures 25″ in height and 17 1/2″ in length.
