About This Book

The first volume on the interiors and designs of one of the most influential designers today, providing unique insight into the creative lives of Rick Owens and his wife, Michele Lamy.
 
This book is conceived as an intimate look into the creative, personal, and often secretive lives of Rick Owens and his wife, muse, and collaborator, Michele Lamy. Known for his self-described “grunge meets glamour” style, Owens showed his first furniture collection in Paris in 2007. It was quickly received as a direct extension of his subversive aesthetic, with its bold mix of material, texture, and functionality, proving that his own artistic universe stretches far beyond the reaches of fashion into a lifestyle his acolytes could embrace.
 
Rick Owens: Interiors captures the place where Owens began designing furniture as a hobby, his iconic home and headquarters at the Palais Bourbon, a space populated with the furniture that Owens has been designing since 2006. Including antler chairs and petrified bark tables as well as workspaces and bedrooms, this volume provides a unique view of the lifestyle and body of interior design work of an artist who is constantly pushing the boundaries with his personal approach to craft.
 
Beautifully illustrated with previously unpublished photographs of materials and process, this book offers readers a distinct look at the home and lifestyle of one of the most acclaimed couples working in fashion today.

Reviews

  • "In an accompanying book, which will be published by Rizzoli in February, Owens emphasizes the contributions of Michèle Lamy — his wife and creative partner, whom he affectionately calls “Hun” — in both the conception and creation of the furniture. 'Michèle has always said in interviews that we didn’t get together to have babies, and that’s true,' Owens allows (when they married in 2006, he was 45 and Lamy was 62). 'But this is kind of our baby, because this is very much a story of a relationship. This is my aesthetic and I pass the ball to her, and then she responds and passes the ball back to me. That’s what the furniture has become.'"

    “I love beautiful books,” said Owens, explaining the reasons why he decided to develop the project. “And I want to preserve my work on my terms with my edit.” The book collects a range of images showing Owens’ different working environments, as well as his creations infused with his distinctive style combining contrasting forces. Art Deco, leather bars, World War II concrete bunkers and Egyptian tombs seen in black-and-white Thirties Hollywood movies are the major sources of inspirations, which Owens mentioned as references of his work."
