Markus Haase, The Crossover Table in Teak, USA, 2014
In this teak table, Markus Haase demonstrates his amazing ability to imbue wood and stone with an almost preternatural sense of fluidity and movement. His chairs, tables, and lamps grow from the ground as if animated waves or columns of smoke.
Haase is a sculptor who has worked primarily in stone for over twenty years. From modernist sculpture to architectural restoration, he brings a wide variety of techniques and perspectives to the first functional series of his career, “Wood and Stone.”
Haase’s inaugural furniture series is the result of years of sketching, sculpting, and pent-up creativity. Haase was formally educated and apprenticed as a stone sculptor in Germany. There, he developed his eye for organic forms and his virtuosity with diverse materials. By day, Haase used his sculpting skills to restore centuries-old Gothic cathedrals; by night, he employed the same skills to explore contemporary sculptural form.
