Markus Haase Sculpts Wood, Marble, and Light—and Makes a Bang at Collective
Inspired by nature and the human form, Haase’s custom chandelier is composed of hand-sculpted bleached ash “branches” imbedded with hand-carved white onyx that encases dimmable LEDs. Suspended upon a scalloped dia- mond shaped satin- nish brass center structure, the arms lend a warm, perennial glow as the LEDs emit softly through the stone. Even when unlit, the unique light sculpture retains its luminescent quality.
Seamlessly combining stone and wood in uid compositions, Haase’s custom chandelier can be created with bespoke sizes and from a variety materials including various woods, stones or metals.

Markus Haase restores the age-old, intricate stonework of Europe’s most revered cathedrals. To his sculptures and furniture, he brings the same mastery and attention to detail employed in his conservation projects. In his breakout series of furniture, Haase seamlessly combines stone and wood in fluid compositions that serve functional ends. Inspired by natural forms found in exotic plant life, Haase’s table legs are intertwined like rainforest vines, and his sconces glow with the dappled light of a forest floor on a sunny day.
