Markus Haase, Faceted Bronze Dining Chair, USA, 2018
Taking inspiration from the twisting forms of organic materials, Haase hand-carves each element of his unique dining chair before casting it in polished bronze. The bronze components appear as animated waves, columns of smoke, or curling seaweed.
Shown upholstered in white pony hair, the chair can be upholstered in a variety of materials. The back-rest can also be created in hand carved wood.
In 2013, Haase launched his first series of sculptural design exclusively with Todd Merrill Studio. Since then, his work has attracted the attention of designers, critics, and collectors worldwide. Haase creates unique works of art, sculptural pieces of furniture, and lighting design that demonstrate his sculpting virtuosity through his works that imbue wood, metal, and stone with a remarkable sense of fluidity and movement. Carved wood and marble assume the qualities of drapery, while his dexterity in combining these elements with dynamic LED technology defines a new artistry for the twenty-first century. As Todd Merrill describes, “Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture or lighting that looks like art… He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.”
As Haase works on a commission basis, custom designs may be requested.
