Description/

A Southern California native, the designer Rick Owens displays a demanding and singular aesthetic in fashion. His original vision plays on material. The dark, minimalist style of his designs was created in the United States and then evolved as he moved to Europe about twenty years ago. He is a huge film fan with a particular penchant for the black and white productions of thirties Hollywood with their sensual and tragic contrasts and values. He tends toward the reconciliation of light and darkness in his work, much like the cinematic masterpieces from this era.

Rick Owens’ sculptural pieces of furniture are designed to last, becoming our heritage. They evoke original furniture through archetypes: the ceremonial chair Curial is one of his most iconic designs, expressing his signature in cut, volume, plan and use of the monochrome.

A Southern California native born in 1962, the acclaimed fashion designer Rick Owens displays a demanding and singular aesthetic in fashion. His original vision plays on the material. Owens lives and works in Paris, but the dark, minimalist style of his designs was created in the United States when he started out making bespoke furniture for his bunker-style loft in Los Angeles. Working with craftsmen of the highest caliber, he has developed a collection of pieces that express his signature style in cut, volume, and plan. His designs evoke original furniture through archetypes. There are a number of typologies: the ceremonial chair Curial, the Trident chair with its structure, and the Halfbox armchair crafted from a chest. Through his choice of subtle and rare materials, Owens suggests the beauty of nature and develops a contrasting palette of black and white that confirms his taste for the monochrome. He juxtaposes values to compose three-dimensional pieces that fully reflect his own style. Through fashion, design, and furniture, he cuts and shapes a transversal and global universe.
