About Rick Owens

American fashion designer Rick Owens began his first furniture collection in Paris in 2007. His furniture designs can be seen as a direct extension of his fashion lines and overall multi-dimensional aesthetic, creating sculptural pieces that verge on art yet function as furniture. The combination of materials he employs, from antlers to alabaster, wood to smooth stone, convey a melding between high design and functionality, like his clothing. Oftentimes oversized, his large Brutalist pieces of furniture vary in color and texture, combining a stark modernist look with contemporary luxury.

American, b. 1962
