Move Over, Function: Greek Designer Kostas Lambridis Arrives in New York With Wild New Works of Furniture Art
26th October 2023
As if toiling in a mechanic’s garage, Kostas Lambridis emerged from under the fender of a Volkswagen Beetle to greet me, careful not to hit his head on its classic curvature. But he wasn’t going to tell me he’d fixed my car, nor was there a car to fix. Instead, the Greek designer was taking time out from installing new works at Carpenters Gallery Workshop in New York—“Reverse Fireworks in Slow Motion” (through November 23)—to explain how these wildly fantastical pieces came to exist.
