HANS COLLECTION

Named for legendary artist Hans arp, Balzano’s Hans collection pays tribute to the visionary French-german sculptor and painter. Arp revolutionized twentieth-century sculpture with his approach to form, known as organic abstraction. Along with his works on paper, arp’s biomorphic sculptures in bronze, plaster, and limestone remain resonant and relevant compositions that evoke the natural world, the human body, and the possibilities of imagination. The Hans collection ingeniously transposes arp’s vocabulary of natural wonder into monumental yet functional collectible furniture pieces

Paying particular homage to arp’s collages, the Hans collection brings together a delectable assortment of fine organic materials that seem to breathe and grow before our very eyes. Luscious green lacquered oak is featured throughout, with accents of natural oak, recalling the muted colors of arp’s works on paper and reliefs in wood. The collection features accents in lens stone, a cream-white French limestone renowned for its very fine crystalline grain and density, prized by modernist European sculptors

Contrasting biomorphic forms and clean lines, the Hans collection brings the master of organic abstraction into contemporary collectible furniture. In strictly limited edition and with certificates of authenticity, each piece is handcrafted in france by fine artisans at ateliers saint-jacques
