Anna Karlin ascends utility with her functional sculptures in geometry-driven patterns. Today i’m going to show you her unique side tables and modern coffee tables.
This Manhattan-based English designer works across all mediums, not only the furniture + lighting collections but her studio practice encompasses everything from digital and print to interiors and set design.
Made from beautiful golden burl, the two tables Puddle nest perfectly and can be moved individually to suit your living room décor.
Made of cold rolled steel, the Block Side Table is finished in a light antique brass with a dark antique brass block base, accentuating the interlocking shapes.
Like chess pieces dotted across board, these sculptures with unique design are placed throughout a room. They are made to work in series or alone each of the four shapes is made from cold rolled steel then brass plated and finished with a hand rubbed patina.
Hand cast from natural Terracotta, Bump tables take their cue from carved Igbo Stools. Her work with geometric art is really impressive and will stand out in any living room décor.
CHUNK is a limited edition series of 5 works each with a different shape and material composition. Each piece is available in an edition of eight. Mastrangelo and Anna Karlin work across wide ranging disciplines in their respective studio practices, with a shared interest in functional sculpture, which formed the basis of their collaboration. These pieces with luxury design brings together the distinct aesthetic and formal signatures of each designer, with Karlin’s iconic Chess Piece series reimagined through Mastrangelo’s signature casting technique and material palette.
After a five-year stint as an art director and designer in London, Anna Karlin moved to New York in 2010, seeking adventure. But once she established her own successful art direction business, she found herself itching to create something that wasn’t an answer to a client’s brief. The resulting collection comprised modern furniture inspired by chess pieces, elegant glassware, and a light fixture about the size and scale of a hula hoop.
Anna Karlin believes strongly that all the disciplines contribute wonderfully to each other and therefore no one area must remain untouched. Her studio practice and Anna Karlin Furniture + Fine Objects are the result of this sensibility.
