The Remains collection
NEW YORK-Furniture designer Thomas Fuchs has created a new tabletop collection that will debut at four Barneys New York locations in the fall.
Thomas Fuchs Creative is currently comprised of four collections: Remains, Moderne, Candle Holders and Glasses, employing traditional artistic processes such as lost wax, glass blowing and handcarving. Pieces in the Remains collection include an ice bucket with a skull motif, carved from a solid piece of Makrana marble; a crystal skull bottle stopper and nickel drink stirrers fashioned after femur bones. The Glasses collection features surfaces that mimic textile patterns, while a candlestick design is reversible and can be used from either end.
"It is exciting for me to use my experience and knowledge of furnishings design as I enter into the retail tabletop market and I am thrilled to begin the journey with Barneys New York," said Fuchs, formerly a furniture designer at Quatrain and Donghia. "I created these collections to offer consumers timeless designs of distinctive daily objects that can evoke emotion while being functional."
The collection will be available in Beverly Hills, Dallas, Chicago and the flagship New York store.
