Dutch-born designer Sebastian Brajkovic is acclaimed for his "Lathe" series of chairs, tables and lamps named for the rotating effect of their design. Imbued with a sense of intrigue and movement, Brajkovic's pieces employ technological and traditional techniques to deconstruct historical elements of furniture with a truly idiosyncratic contemporary style. Exquisitely crafted—combining woodcarving, bronze casting and hand embroidering —this series emphasizes the beauty of 17th-century aesthetics with the innovation of modern design.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
