BRENT WARR

BW

Born Bainbridge, Georgia, 1997

An Atlanta based furniture designer, Warr is noted for his bold, whimsical, and elegant sculptural art, collectible furniture, and lighting. Warr’s designs challenge us to see familiar forms anew and explore more imaginative parts of ourselves. Passionate about process, he explores form and function to breathe new life into materials not typically used in furniture making, along with plaster, wood, and paint

With a bold yet restrained aesthetic vocabulary, Warr focuses on the total composition of a piece rather than its individual parts. Particularly inspired by Brancusi and Cy Twombly, he uses a broad spectrum of mixed media including plaster, wood, acrylic, oil paint, pen, charcoal, and twine to create surprising and ingenious pieces. Playful yet sophisticated, Warr’s work reinvents and reinvigorates classical forms, proportions, and lines

A graduate of the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction at Auburn University, Warr went to work as a Designer for Meyer Davis Studio and Yabu Pushelberg in New York City. There, his eye for design evolved as he was exposed to global collective design and high-end clientele
