The Ocean Drive Collection is a limited series of neon sculptures, designed with April Key's unique style and drawing upon the bold colors and architecture associated with the Art Deco era.
The project was born when the British designer April Key discovered a large series of lost 1950s Kodachrome negatives, dug up at a flea market in Istanbul. The films revealed a stunning narrative of a Turkish couple who moved to Miami in the early 1950s, 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, taking its features and embedding those into each light piece to create a modern-retro futuristic city-scape. 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.
