Christian Wassmann

Founding his New York practice in 2006, Swiss-born architect Christian Wassmann has made a name for himself within various sectors of the art and design world. Having trained with famed master Steven Holl and leading avant garde theatre director Robert Wilson, the architect has established a formal yet conceptual vocabulary on his own. Drawing in part from Modernist principles, Wassmann’s designs transcend mathematic reasoning, celestial influence, logical experimentation, ingrained meaning and elements of surprise. He has developed everything from Chelsea galleries to art fair interiors and Miami Beach villas, but also furniture and lighting schemes. Designed as a part of the Platonic Objects series, Wassmann’s Dodecahedron lamp for Spazio Nobile explores the potential of reflection and optical amplification by means of geometry
