Markus Haase, Bronze and Onyx Circlet Sconce, USA, 2018

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Markus Haase creates unique sculptural lighting combining hand-carved wood, cast bronze, and the latest in LED technology.

    The Circlet Sconce features an organically shaped ring, cast in polished bronze, that extends from a pivoting arm for a visual interest that is both, elegant and versatile. Haase hand-carves each sconce in foam, creating a unique jewelry like faceted form that is then sand cast in his New York City studio. Hidden LED lights emit a warm glow through hand-carved onyx which line then interior of the ring. The work retains its luminescent quality even when unlit.

    In 2013, Markus Haase formally launched his first series of sculptural furniture exclusively with Todd Merrill Studio. Since then, his work has attracted the attention of designers, critics, and collectors worldwide. Haase has been exhibited at prestigious art fairs including The Salon: Art + Design in New York; Collective Design in New York; the Pavilion of Arts and Design in Paris, London, and New York; FOG: Design + Art in San Francisco; and Spring Masters in New York.

    Haase refined his sculpting practice studying under Europe’s preeminent masters of stone carving, restoring centuries-old Gothic cathedrals across Northern Germany for over a decade. These experiences, combined with his fresh and impressive eye for design, allow Haase to create his dynamic, expressive works. Haase demonstrates his sculpting virtuosity through his designs that imbue wood and stone with a remarkable sense of fluidity and movement. Carved wood assumes qualities of drapery, while marble suggests energy and vigor. His dynamic sculptural lighting defines a new artistry for the twenty-first century. As Todd Merrill describes, “Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture that looks like art… He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.”

    As Haase works on a commission basis, custom designs may be requested.
