With so many designers and furniture houses around the globe, it's not easy to stand out, but VOLK Furniture does with a few nifty tricks. Using color, pattern and geometry, and only the finest handpicked solid woods, this Brooklyn-based studio livens up a longstanding tradition of fine handcrafted furniture. We spotted his work during New York Design Week. Hit the jump for a look at three of their latest designs.
VOLK’s founder Brian Volk-Zimmerman is a painter, musician and an amazing designer of dizzying interiors. The Ash Credenza with and without storage is hand painted with bold earthy colors into trapezoids and triangles, and the drawers are lined with vintage shirting fabrics. Antique organ stops are used for the drawers.
The Geometric tables are like a puzzle that fit together. Modular, flexible and infinitely cool, these solid ash pieces are also hand painted and then finished with oil and wax. Be sure to check out some of the other fresh interiors on display during New Design Week and ICFF. We have found a slew of them.
