Lara Bohinc’s ability to create work with iconic beauty is rooted in her familiarity with materials and manufacturing approaches. While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has also drawn on her knowledge of industrial techniques, fusing modernity of style with function, to achieve a contemporary elegance in her art furniture.
The same principles apply in all of her contemporary designs – use of the finest materials, and an obsession with deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form. Overall, Lara Bohinc’s signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine.
Metal is my favorite material. It is so malleable and yet so hard and durable. It can last thousands of years, and yet you can always melt it down and shape it again, over and over. It is the ultimate sustainable material.”says Lara Bohinc.
Lara Bohinc‘s first art furniture piece was the Solaris Kinetic Table, launched at Wallpaper “Handmade” exhibition in 2014. The success of this modern design piece resulted in two further collections of marble furniture design and interior accessories. Lara Bohinc has also collaborated with Swedish company Skultuna for a bestselling range of brass candleholders and desktop accessories.
