Lace in Translation is an exhibit currently going on at the Design Center at Philadelphia University inspired by lace, which features work by Demakersvan, Cal Lane and Tord Boontje. My favorite is probably this chain mesh lace fence. It's industrial and beautiful in a way that the two are not usually combined.
The website for the exhibition also has a part where viewers can submit their own work related to or inspired by Lace in Translation. I posted a piece that I made there. Please go check it out and vote for it. = )
