Artist

Architect/designer/artist/inventor Gregg Fleishman’s work is informed by geometry and functionality.  He received his Architectural degree in 1970 from USC.  His acclaimed futuristic innovative architectural structures, including the iconic SCULPT chairs, are in collections and museums.  He coined the term “Rhombicube,” a diamond panel form distilled out of a 3-D checkerboard of cubes, which forms the geometrical basis for his Shelter Systems. His patented designs obviate the need for screws or fasteners, using integral slots and notches in plywood, employing wood springs and hinges.  Gregg’s mission is to continue developing ways to make building easier: www.greggfleishman.com   Gregg has designed major art installations at Burning Man 2011 and 2012: www.oticoasis.org
