Chris Lehrecke | Designing with Nature

14 Jun - 19 Jul 2019

Lehrecke began by designing custom pieces for architects and interior designers, yet quickly honed his own practice and made a name for his himself within the world of high-end design. 

Based in Bangall, New York, Chris Lehrecke and Gabriella Kiss are collaborative artists who create inspired works of art. Lehrecke quickly established himself within the world of designer furniture and is well known for his unique, wood-based designs. His wife, Gabriella Kiss, designs beautiful jewlery pieces as well as artful additions for Lerecke’s furniture. Driven by their passion for quality craftmanship and original design, the couple’s latest exhibition showcases their united talents. Unfolding a new chapter at Tayloe Piggott Gallery, this exhibition illuminates the diverse nature of art within sculptural furniture and jewelry.

 

Chris Lehrecke has designed furniture for over three decades. Although trained as a studio artist, Lehrecke turned to the art of furniture in the early 80s. He began by designing custom pieces for architects and interior designers, yet quickly honed his own practice and made a name for his himself within the world of high-end design. Due to his eye for timeless shapes paired with natural lines, Lehrecke’s designs evolved into a limited production line of lamps, benches, stools, daybeds, pedestals, tables, and bed frames. Each piece reverberates Lehrecke’s aesthetic, which is defined by his crisp, modern style, quality of materials, and simplistic ethos. Represented by Ralph Pucci International, Lehrecke’s work truly reflects the epitome of high-end design.
