Karl Zahn

Karl Zahn is a product and furniture designer based in Brooklyn, New York. His work recalls a Danish influence, with its stark minimalism and functional ingenuity - and includes lighting, household products, decorative and experimental objects.

As a child growing up in rural Vermont, Zahn would experiment with household objects - including paper and  toothpicks - to create models that reflected the environment around them. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, he studied metalworking San Francisco, before returning to New York to set up his own design shop.
