About Marc Bankowsky

Designer and decorator Marc Bankowsky creates furniture and accessories using materials including metal, plaster, resin, and lambswool. Often inspired by the natural world, Bankowksy has produced candlestick-holders and sconces in the form of flowers and leaves, and bronze table legs that replicate plants and vines. He has also created plaster screens and plinths that appear to be composed of swaths of draped fabric, and bronze-legged stools upholstered in Mongolian lamb. Major commissions have included a custom-designed set of furniture for the Christian Dior boutique in Paris, and accessories for the restaurateur Pierre Gagnaire.
