      Los Angeles Inspired Walnut Art

      The Backstory + Process

      It’s here – Dwell on Design. America’s largest design event in Los Angeles flawlessly executed by the one and only Dwell team. Gearing up and looking forward to Dwell on Design 2013 we wanted to include original, unique art that was inspired by iconic Los Angeles locations. After some thought and newfound inspiration, I consulted wood artist Frederick Arndt (designer in Saginaw, Michigan) and he was up for the project. I shot over some ideas and direction. Fred went to work, and with some back and forth, he solidified the design beautifully in under a week. Spanning the design globe from mid-century modern to art deco, and all the way to futuristic art, these precisely detailed walnut art prints are sure to bring back old memories and create new ones for everyone who has visited these historic locations.

      Wood Art (aka fretworks) is typically created using one of two methods - scroll saw cutting or laser cutting. Scroll saw cutting is relatively slow and usually only allows for the production of a single piece at a time. On the other hand, laser cutting offers a faster, more precise and repetitive way to produce these designs. We opted for the laser cutting technology which utilizes a high-powered laser to produce clean lines and super high-quality finish to the walnut artwork. Eco-friendly and eco-chic, these exclusive pieces will spruce up your walls for a lifetime (or two).

      Santa Monica Walnut Art

      If you’ve been to Santa Monica then chances are you’ve seen the pier sign that leads you down to the roller coaster and ferris wheel. Originally built in 1909 for sewage disposal (thankfully not anymore), this piece highlights the gateway to the pier with the detail to match. This iconic place remains true to its history while allowing you to revisit yours.
