About

The geometry is God line is driven by a fascination with Pagan and Alchemical symbolism and ancient geometries. With this series, we have attempted to reinterpret these markings without losing the potency of their primary aesthetic. The goal is to make furniture that is symbolically dense and as a result the collection could be described as functional sculpture.

About the Maker

The collection is made by generations of master artisans locally in New York and Florence, Italy. Dark horse disciples of art and design, Material Lust (Christian Swafford and Lauren Larson) abide by a Solitarian philosophy, wholly independent of trend. Though their work draws on myriad influences—the guidance of their artist mothers; the old-world methods of the master artisans with whom they partner —their intent remains sharply focused. Through preservation of time-honored technique and an uncompromising commitment to forward-thinking design, Swafford and Larson honor the dignity in the ominous and the oft-forgotten; pushing the bounds of what deserves to be seen. In spring 2016, Material Lust opened the Annex, a collaborative space that is an evolving extension of the brand’s vision to bring radical design to the forefront—and one that redefines the concept of a Total Work of Art. In November 2016 they debuted their body of work at JF Chen in Los Angeles as a curatorial collaboration with Bianca Chen, using JF Chen's renowned collection, showcased among the legendary collection and their admired selections of artists. In addition to furniture and textile design, the pair bring over ten years of experience to Creative Consulting, Art Direction, Product Design and Interiors, working regularly with clients seeking bold and and unorthodox methods of developing their brands, products, or spaces.
