RICK OWENS: MAISON/OBJECTS LINE

Under the Maison/Objects line Rick Owens has created a flurry of diverse homewares. The designer is known for his sleek, brutalism-inspired furniture; with similar design aesthetics, he is now adding wares to his namesake.

The collection includes ornate furnishings such as silver dessert forks with bone handles, a bronze ashtray filled with dusty gray nitrate, a grail vase made entirely of one piece of rock crystal and a skinny tray based on Egyptian volutes. One notable piece is the "STAG T." A large T-shaped structure made of black plywood and natural moose antler, a common material that is often used in Owens' furniture. It measures at 55 x 30 x 44 cm with a weight of about seven kilograms, which allows it to be used for a number of purposes — like a stool or a stopper. The appearance of each STAG T will differ slightly from piece to piece since its horns are natural. For example, the bronze "DUCK NECK VASE," "BRAZIER" coffee table, "CRYSTAL BOWL" and four-legged "COUPE" soup bowl complete the succinct assemblage.

Rick Owens' Maison/Objects homewares are currently available from $1,025 – $8,375 USD on the label's website.

In other news, Rick Owens' "Phlegethon" collection with the name deriving from "one of the rivers in the inferno mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy, not quite the core of hell but on the way there." The benefit of this simple two-panel broadcast, like seeing a black and white multi-station surveillance camera instead of a live stage display, showing a fitting Owens conducted at the Paris studio with the model Tyrone Dylan Susman is that the main action is on the clothes without any possible distraction, like the colored smoke from his Spring 2019 show at the Palais de Tokyo. There's something of a surprise like a suspense film with something about to happen, moments before the calm is interrupted, with this fixed camera shooting in its entirety with little editing as the designer and the model strolling around the concrete studio with clothing racks lined up along the bare walls. The model poses for a 'polaroid' (well digitally anyway) when the right combination of clothes comprising an ensemble is arrived at.
