Ate­lier Kos­tia – Cons­tan­tin Laan, 5, Ci­té de la Ro­quette, Pa­ris 11, T +33 (0)6 23 06 70 84, in­fo@art­kos­tia.com, By ap­point­ment on­ly.

Cons­tan­tin Laan en­te­red the world of de­si­gn af­ter stu­dying Eco­no­mics in the Uni­ted States. He's ob­vious­ly chan­ged di­rec­tions in choo­sing his new ca­reer out of a pas­sion for wood, a ma­te­rial which he glo­ri­fies in his char­ming ate­lier in the 11th ar­ron­dis­se­ment of Pa­ris. He creates fur­ni­ture which com­bine wood and me­tal (most­ly bronze). Why fur­ni­ture? Be­cause for him it im­plies an al­liance bet­ween the func­tio­nal and the ima­gi­na­ry. He's not afraid to flout the constraints of clas­si­cal fur­ni­ture by his use of contem­po­ra­ry ma­te­rials.
