YORGO LIAPIS "NOUVEAU" CHAIR IN WALNUT
Yorgo Liapis is a promising and talented young studio furniture designer.
We were introduced to Yorgo through Reed Hansuld and we immediately fell in love with his work.
Yorgo's aesthetic filters the intricacy and ornament of Art Nouveau through a Modernist lens.
The result is a stylized interpretation of Art Nouveau. Imagine this desk with a Galle vase or a Mucha print.
Yet at the same time the desk would not be out of place with a Josef Albers behind it.
The desk is crafted of American walnut and all the legs and joints are solid and hand-carved.
The desk's top is made from hand-cut walnut veneer with a hand-oiled finish
Yorgo's exceptional level of craftsmanship is rare in this era of mass-produced furniture.
Yorgo Liapis is available for custom commissions.
Additional images available on request.
