Markus Haase, Bronze, Walnut, and Limestone Dining Table, USA, 2018
Markus Haase’s one-of-a-kind 12-foot handcrafted dining table features a sculpted American black walnut top resting on a bronze tripod, supported by a carved limestone base. The organically shaped bronze tripod is sculpted in foam and then cast in the artist’s New York City studio. Contrasting the brilliance of the tripod’s mirror polished bronze, the soft hand-carved limestone base anchors the table in perfect harmony.
Todd Merrill Studio is pleased to represent artist Markus Haase. Combining a mastery of traditional sculpting techniques with a contemporary, material-driven approach to design, Markus Haase creates unique works of art, sculptural pieces of furniture, and lighting design.
Haase refined his sculpting practice studying under Europe’s preeminent masters of stone carving, restoring centuries-old Gothic cathedrals across Northern Europe for over a decade. These experiences, combined with his fresh and impressive eye for design, allow Haase to create his dynamic, expressive works. Haase demonstrates his sculpting virtuosity through his designs that imbue wood, metal, stone and resin with a remarkable sense of fluidity and movement. His dynamic sculptural lighting defines a new artistry for the twenty-first century. As Todd Merrill describes, “Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture that looks like art… He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.”
In 2013, Haase formally launched his first series of sculptural furniture exclusively with Todd Merrill Studio. Since then, his work has attracted the attention of designers, critics, and collectors worldwide. Haase has been exhibited at prestigious art fairs including The Salon: Art + Design in New York; Collective Design in New York; the Pavilion of Arts and Design in Paris, London, and New York; FOG: Design + Art in San Francisco; and Spring Masters in New York.
As Haase works on a commission basis, custom designs may be requested.
