Markus Haase, Bang III Console, USA, 2016


At once a sublime work of art and a functional object, BANG III is a unique, hand-carved console that defies easy categorization. Markus Haase’s two decades of experience as a sculptor are evident in his masterful treatment of materials, where smooth undulations American black walnut appear as malleable as drapery as they curve in convex and concave forms beneath a hand-carved marble top. Haase is equally adept at sculpting in stone as in wood and proves himself to be a master of the stack laminated technique. Like a classical sculpture balanced in contraposto, the piece is rendered at ideal aesthetic equilibrium: the bold, dense structure that appears to grow from the ground on the right, is met with a lightness and levity as the left side floats. BANG III conveys speed and movement; it is about to propel and take off. Through automotive allusion and intricate carvings, the wood appears windblown and the structure accelerating. The piece is fit with one storage drawer and is wall-mounted. A commissioned piece may be custom ordered with bespoke dimensionality and materials. “Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture that looks like art. He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.” – Todd Merrill. Measures: 72″ L x 38″ H x 17″ D.
