Architectural Book Sculpture from Hand-Carved Bowling Ball by Eddy Sykes

About

Made from vintage bowling balls, this series of sculptures explores notions of the trophy; in relation to seminal architectural texts. Meticulously hand-carved and printed, the objects transform into the super-book SMLXL by Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau.

About The Maker

View Profile
Eddy studio. Founded in the early 2000’s by artist Eddy Sykes, Eddy Studio is a one man design practice hopping between Los Angeles and Mexico City. Extremely limited output is the hallmark of his studio as all pieces are made one at a time from start to finish by him. His so called ‘Vaudeville/Skunkworks’ aesthetic is a unique mix of influences thanks to Eddy’s childhood working in a small family run circus founded by his father in the late 60’s combined with his early professional work designing for nuclear and military industries. Eddy masqueraded as an architect/engineer for a while and gradually built up a small following of clientele. Fans of his unique design approach included carny geeks, bikers, Dotcom moguls and Hollywood types. His work is truly his world, and as such, he believes that there is a premium placed on what you should spend your time doing, and therefore he does what he loves. “Keep an eye on Eddy Sykes, who could well be his generation’s answer to Buckminster Fuller." – The New York Times
