“There is nothing more modern than antiquity.” —Karl Lagerfeld
Taking his inspiration from Greek Architecture and the golden ratio, Lagerfeld debuts his first ever sculpture exhibition at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris.
The show, called ‘Architectures’, was the result of a collaboration with architect Aline Asmar d’Amman. It features a striking, monochromatic array of mirrors, tables, fountains, and marble curios.
The collection also includes gueridons (circular side tables), lamps and consoles. Each piece is carved from a carefully selected block of rare Arabescato fantastico or black nero marquina marble.
Lagerfled, who is the creative director at Chanel, states that the designs were the result of improvisation. His approach to this collection was a matter of allowing the beauty of the material to shine, and not to overwhelm it with a plan.
