Misha Kahn Designs Scrappy Cabinets That Turn Into Art Furniture
According to design technologist John Maeda: “Misha Kahncreates work for a parallel wonderland, where the traditional perception of material and structure is pushed to the edges of the room to make space for one big party.”
Recognized for assemblage, he integrates refuse and found objects in his furniture and lighting unique designs. Misha Kahn‘s style has been described as “disheveled, spontaneous maximalism”.
For the artist Misha Kahn, less is a bore. Known for his maximal, playful modern furniture-as-sculpture, his creations are tactile and textured, marrying the functional to the fantastic with an emphasis on the latter. His creative and iconic work is found in numerous public collections such as the Corning Museum of Glass (Corning, New York), and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (Houston, Texas).
