‘Rick Owens: Furniture’ At Moca
“I want it to be monumental. I think we have enough cosiness in our lives. Isn’t it nice every once in a while, to have a little bit of discipline and to have something that makes you sit up kind of straight?” explains Rick Owens of his recent exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art in LA.
With his wife Michèle Lamy, Owens began making Furniture in 2007 and the exhibit contains about 20 percent classic pieces and 80 percent new works, many of which they conceived for his newest store in New York’s Soho.
It is, in fact, Lamy who is the creative force behind the furniture: “It’s an intimate exercise, a conversation between me and Michele,” Owens said of their design process “the furniture — because it was never a necessity for us — was something that we just did for ourselves to indulge our own aesthetic appetites and our personal needs,”.
‘Rick Owens: Furniture,’ which will be on display until April 2nd, 2017 at MOCA’s Pacific Design Center space in West Hollywood, Calif.
Rick Owens is exclusive to 4.
