How to spend it – Rick Owens hits Carpenters Workshop Gallery with dramatic furniture
“I’m a control freak,” says fashion icon Rick Owens of the inspiration that led him to design furniture with his wife Michèle Lamy. “I wanted to control the environment around me aesthetically.” Their first collection showed in Paris in 2007, where its dark, minimal aesthetic was proclaimed an extension of Owens’ subversive style, but is more explicitly a creative by-product of his relationship with Lamy – the pieces were initially conceived for their own personal space. Together they conjure sculptural forms carved from materials such as basalt, petrified wood and alabaster, and will unveil new limited-edition collectables (priced from €38,000) at Glade, an exhibition at London’s Carpenters Workshop Gallery, which opens this week until October 25.
