Karl Lagerfeld Unveils Marble Pieces For Carpenters Workshop GalleryThursday 11 October 2018
Karl Lagerfeld Unveils Marble Pieces For Carpenters Workshop Gallery ⇒ Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris presented Chanel‘s head designer Karl Lagerfeld first exhibition of sculptural works, named “Architecture”. The exhibit is comprised of monochromatic, functional sculptures that draw from antiquity. Presented at the gallery’s Parisian location, the exhibition evokes a contemporary architectural landscape with Greek origins, with pieces made from the noblest material, marble.
Carpenters Workshop Gallery exhibits gueridons, tables, lamps, consoles, fountains and mirrors, with each piece of ‘Architectures’ carved from two types of carefully selected marble blocks. Arabescato fantastico is a rare white stone with dark grey veins; black Nero Marquina features brush stroke-like, white veins. The marble is precisely cut, sculpted, faceted and polished in Italy. The result, black-and-white forms exemplify Lagerfeld’s classic monochromatic style.
The meticulous work with marble — studied and developed in collaboration with architect Aline Asmard’Amman — sees lighting works that diffuse a specific daylight. The shades of the table lamps are distinctively hand-painted using the most traditional, decorative arts techniques. Ever-shifting between the antique and the contemporary, the collection pushes the boundaries of craftsmanship and history.
The collection is a limited edition of eight pieces in each marble colour, plus four artist proofs.
