Stephen Castanou’s SPEGGO on exhibit in Brambleton

This evening, Loudoun County Magazine attended the premier of artist Stephen Castanou’s Brambleton Library’s Micro Art Gallery series entitled SPEGGO. SPEGGO uses simple pasta forms as inspiration to explore playful conceptual projects in architecture and design.

Castanou shared with us that his inspiration for this series is to see the potential of everyday food as a design for the future. His piece entitled “Lasagna-rolled Chair” shows the unique function of splitting for sharing while also celebrating the wavy texture of lasagna as a design that can provide stability as furniture.

Castanou is currently a senior at Wilson Hill Academy and intends to study architecture at college.
