Anna Karlin: Designing in 360 Degrees
After establishing herself as a graphic designer, art director, and interior and set designer, London-born Anna Karlin found that her progression to product designer was a natural transition. After moving to New York in 2010, the Glasgow School of Art alumni set her sights on building her first product collection and launched Anna Karlin Furniture + Fine Objects this month.
Karlin's first collection varies from a stately table to stools to glassware to barware. Restricting herself to a palette of natural materials including wood, metal, glass, ceramics, and brass, she aimed for the objects to work in a series. "The pieces are meant to create little scenes within a space," she says. Each item maintains a clean silhouette and attention to detail is paramount.
