Rick Owens’ anti-cozy furniture

Looking at any item of furniture by Rick Owens, “cozy” is possibly the last word one would use. Angular, monumental and sometimes tomb-like, the pieces the American designer has been creating since 2007 feature stark materials like Carrara marble and slabs of alabaster. Sometimes, moose antlers make an appearance.

The overall aesthetic — which Owens has said in interviews is also the contribution of his wife and creative partner Michele Lamy — is miles away from comfort, but captivating because of that. It defies the classic rules of what makes ‘good’ furniture.
