Carol Egan

Born in 1974 in Dublin, Carol Egan is a graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City. She is an award-winning designer with an internationally established profile.

Since 2012, Carol Egan has developed a line of sculptural furniture whose timeless elegance has become iconic. Wall shelves, freestanding consoles, benches, coffee tables, mirrors and chairs: these works are produced using 3D modeling software and then crafted and hand finished using traditional woodworking techniques or lost wax bronze casting techniques.

Egan emphasizes unique form and structure, and is focused on coaxing minimal, subtle sensibilities to the fore. Crafted with traditional fabrication methods, her work performs the impossible and the unimagined, such as what seems a 180-degree twist contortion of wood. Obsessed with the curvaceous, she breathes life into materials that are typically heavy and rigid with her light, inspired revelations of line and lively forms that explore the theme of doubling and the play of shadow and reflection alike.

“As a designer, I’m interested in technology. I am fascinated by the intersection of technology with craftwork. What excites me is using the technology to manipulate material into unexpected and unique forms.“

A Special Mention as best contemporary piece was attributed to her by the PAD London jury in 2015 for her freestanding console and X benches presented by Galerie BSL.
