FrontRunners: Shine and Dine
Craig Van Den Brulle, whose namesake gallery in Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood carries furnishings by Gio Ponti, Robsjohn-Gibbings, and other design-world luminaries, has begun showcasing his own furniture collection, Delaunay (www.craigvandenbrulle.com). Van Den Brulle, who named his new line after a type of mathematical triangulation, uses computer design and laser soldering to create maximalist, architectural pieces. At once organic and hard-edged, the $75,000 made-to-order dining table shown here is a sculptural array of interlocking triangles. The Delaunay collection includes chair and mirror designs that are available in steel, gilt bronze, or chrome and are as striking as the table.
