Karl Lagerfeld has created a series of photographic prints to be presented at the Cassina showroom in Paris now through March 10th.
Through his lens, the furniture becomes part of his sophisticated style and reveals a striking interpretation of iconic pieces designed by international designers and architects including Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, Franco Albini, Gerrit T. Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Gio Ponti, Vico Magistretti, Jean-Marie Massaud, Piero Lissoni and Rodolfo Dordoni.
“Each photograph emphasizes a silhouette, the elegance of particular finishes, the luxury of a detail and the seduction of the materials,” said Gianluca Armento, Brand Director of Cassina.
Lagerfeld debuted as a photographer in 1987. He received the Gordon Parks Foundation Award in 2011, the Lucky Strike Design Award from the Raymond Loewy Foundation, the cultural prize from the German Photographic Society, and the ICP Trustees Award at the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Awards in 2007. He has produced a number of photographic books, curated numerous exhibitions, and guest edited at Wallpaper and AD France among many other magazines.
The exhibit will be in Milan for the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April, and then the New York for Fashion Week in September. More details to be anounced.
