Anna Karlin

Born in London, Anna Karlin studied visual communication at Central Saint Martins and the Glasgow School of Art. Now based in New York, she is a multidisciplinary designer, working on interiors and art-direction projects in addition to launching her Furniture + Fine Objects and Anna Karlin Fine Jewelry collections.

Karlin renovated a two-story, burned-out former print shop on the Lower East Side and transformed it into a multipurpose workplace. “Designing, building and opening our showroom and studio in Manhattan really gave people a chance to experience firsthand the types of spaces we can create,” she says. “Since then, we’ve had so many requests that we’ve been able to take on some really exciting projects, both residential and commercial.” 

Interested in the tension between the natural and the man-made, Karlin is currently working on her new collection.

“We’ll show a capsule in Milan in April and then we’ll launch the full collection in New York in May,” she says of her work in 2019. “Working on this collection, I’ve really given myself the space to push further the concept of usable sculpture.”
