Karl Springer LTD, Sculpture Bench, USA
The Karl Springer Sculpture Bench features an alligator-embossed 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. The bench can be created in polished steel or customers own material.
In partnership with Mark Eckman, President of Karl Springer LTD, Todd Merrill has curated a selection of Karl Springer’s most iconic designs to be reissued exclusively at Todd Merrill Studio.
Though he based his designs on European classical forms, Karl Springer developed an irreverent and non-doctrinaire idiom of bold proportions, highly exotic finishes, and a sometimes-flashy palette that identified him strongly with his American clientele. His work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and 80s 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.
