London-born, New York-based furniture and interior designer Anna Karlin made her debut in Milan at the Galleria Rossana Orlandi during this year’s Milan Design Week. The pieces that were on show are new additions to her ongoing Subverting Domestic Familiarity collection, that explores the relationship between natural forms and those that are manmade.
“We have a fundamental need for familiarity or to be surrounded by natural forms,” says Karlin, “where there is fragility, there is strength. Where there is disequilibrium, there is balance. Where there vulnerability, there is support. The works are a visual interpretation of these emotional paradigms that exist in our everyday lives.”
