A pair of tessellated bone veneered carver dining chairs with scrolling arms and sabre legs and completed in a deep purple wax upholstery, designed by Enrique Garcel for Karl Springer, circa 1970s.
Karl Springer established a tiny workshop in Manhattan and started concentrating purely on his furniture designs in the 1960s, taking inspiration from pure, classical designs and translating them into custom made furniture. He demanded the highest level of materials and workmanship using wood, lucite and metals, often customizing pieces for specific clients. His signature furniture styles were Art Deco, classical Chinese and Bauhaus and he travelled extensively constantly looking to discover new forms, techniques and materials. He experimented widely with exotic finishes including lacquered parchment, shagreen, rare woods, leather and horn.
