A study in only black and white, Lagerfeld’s first sculptural design series makes its mark in Paris at Carpenters Workshop Gallery today.
The contrast of a modern light source atop a classic Greco-Roman column lends a sense of “modern mythology.”
The entire limited edition series includes he ensemble of gueridons, tables, lamps, consoles, mirrors, and fountains.
The collection features table made of Arabescato Fantastico, described as “a rare vibrant white marble with dark grey veins which has not been quarried for more than thirty years,” per the gallery notes.
Shown against black, the designs command attention in a striking way.
The strong, silent type: Lagerfeld looks to the antiquity and Roman traditions for the series.
