Angelika Taschen recently spearheaded a new exhibition from master of dark luxury, Rick Owens in celebration of Berlin Gallery Weekend. Called “To Pop a Boner” and located on the upper floor of iconic store Apartment Berlin, the exhibition showcases several items from Owens’ furniture collection, including tables, chairs, lamps, as well as smaller design objects. Inspired by the forms of Eileen Gray, Constantin Brancusi and California skate parks, the furniture collection retains a special and personal resonance for the designer. Wallpaper magazine describes the forms as, “…sculptural as his clothing, but have a monolithic weight to them. They are made predominantly from raw plywood, resin and fiberglass, but several pieces could just as easily be carved in stone. He has (almost) completely suppressed any temptation to add decorative Gothic touches.”
