Ocean Drive Collection

The Ocean Drive Collection is a limited series of neon sculptures, inspired by Art Deco architecture and bold colours of the Art Deco era. This is a 5 piece collection, each individually named.

- Harvey’s Bar - Capri Motel - The Plaza - South Beach Theater - Sunset Diner -

  The project was born when April herself discovered a large series of lost 1950s Kodachrome negatives, dug up at a flea market in Istanbul. The films (shown below) revealed a stunning narrative of a Turkish couple who moved to Miami in the early 1950’s, bought a Cadillac and took it cruising through the USA. 

The architectural emphasis and energy of this lost archive was used as the key inspiration, 

The collection is primarily constructed out of laser cut plexiglass, sprayed down to a matte white finish. The handmade glass neon, carefully blown by highly experienced ateliers in Istanbul, has a lifespan of up to 10-15 years. They have been produced in various colours and sizes, and the neon colour itself can be chosen by the customer when placing an order.
