Rick Owens Urban Minimalist Furniture Showing at Salon94

We take a look at the Rick Owens furniture presented by Salon94 at Art Basel Switzerland. Characteristic of Owens’s “glunge” aesthetic (his own term, short for “glamorous grunge”), the furniture showcases urban-minimalist influences from the likes of Donald Judd, Le Corbusier, and Eileen Gray. These chairs made of giant antlers and  petrified wood were first designed by Owens as a personal hobby in 2006, and now, they also conveniently furnish his home in Paris. Owens calls his furniture the “antithesis” of his clothes which are fluid and drapey, but both his clothes and furniture are clearly defined by his own signature twist. See the full retrospective of his furniture collection here.
