Stefan Rurak, Trapezoid Mirror Desk / Vanity, USA, 2019

Stefan Rurak’s dynamic vanity/desk typifies his unique approach to design. The work features a heavily patinated steel and bleached ash desk, topped by a trapezoidal mirror that has been acid etched to mimic the expressionist painted decoration. The vanity consists of three drawers and has an accompanying bench with a leather cushion.

Brooklyn-based Stefan Rurak’s furniture merges fine art aesthetics, modern conceptual design, and traditional, hand-made craftsmanship techniques. His evocative, one-of-a-kind works are the type of collectible pieces built to span generations. Working with a variety of materials – wood, cast concrete, and steel –  Rurak draws no distinction between art and design – the utilitarian becoming a canvas for his aesthetic endeavor. Each piece conveys movement, action, and intuition, providing a stark counterpoint to the meticulous construction and composition of the functional skeleton underneath.
