His solo showcase “Architectures” at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents a collection of marble sculptures, created in collaboration with the architect Aline Asmar d’Amman. Together they also worked on the renovation of Paris’ Hôtel Crillon, where Lagerfeld installed a two-tonne bath cut from a single block of Carrara marble.

This exhibition is the continuation of that experience and is filled of exquisite art and design pieces. Despite the coldness of the white marble and its dimensions, the artworks are rather functional and are shaped like pier tables, lamps, fountains and mirrors.

Lagerfeld’s marble collection was deeply influenced by Antiquity, “an epoch which knew no such thing as bad taste”, according to him. Each art piece was created using black Nero Marquina marble and Arabescato Fantastico in exclusive limited editions of eight. Marrying the ancient and the contemporary, these sculptural designs, as all other Lagerfeld’s creations, will definitely keep on influencing aesthetic, taste and trends in the creative field.
