Capture, by Paul Cocksedge, is a 5 ¼ ft hand-spun aluminum dome that appears to "hold" the peaceful glow of a warm white light.

Capture is also the name of the British designer's inaugural solo exhibition - four and a half years in the making - at the Friedman Benda gallery in New York from September 12 to October 12, 2013.


The exhibition will introduce new works developed by Cocksedge that push the mediums of light and structure, including the Capture collection of dramatic, seemingly impossible, hand-wrought dome lamps, and Poised, a series of unyielding steel tables inspired by the delicacy of paper.


Known for exploring the limits of technology, materials, and manufacturing capabilities, "Capture finds Cocksedge presenting a new series of concepts informed by his studio's commitment to technological ingenuity, expanding the boundaries of physics, and the creation of works that are both thought provoking and unexpected." says Friedman Benda.


In addition to the new works, Cocksedge will present three architectural models that take conceptual threads from works inside the gallery and reapply them to architectural settings outside of the gallery space.


"Central to Cocksedge's work is an appreciation for the ways in which people respond to and interact with his designs. As a result, potential real world applications of these new works will be explored in a series of architectural models."
