Karl Springer LTD, Sculpture Bench, USA
As the exclusive authorized representative of Karl Springer LTD, Todd Merrill Studio is pleased exhibit the elegant and timeless Sculpture Bench from Springer’s iconic repertoire. The pictured bench features an alligator-embossed black two-tone glazed calfskin. Springer is often credited with reviving the art of applying skins to furniture, a practice long associated with French Deco masters including Jean Michel Frank, Jean Dunand, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann. This piece exemplifies the artist’s penchant for creating sculptural designs that are as beautiful as they are functional.
Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Karl Springer (1931-1991) created custom designs with superb craftsmanship and extreme attention to detail. Though he based his designs on European classical forms, Springer developed an irreverent and non-doctrinaire idiom of bold proportions and highly exotic finishes that is evidenced in this exquisite dining table reissued through the partnership of Karl Springer LTD and Todd Merrill Studio. His iconic work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and now finds new relevance in the world of contemporary design.
Karl Springer LTD pieces are available exclusively through Todd Merrill Studio on a commission basis. Custom dimensions and materials may be accommodated.
