Kristin Victoria Barron

With her finely honed interiors and highly coveted range of hand-finished lighting and objects, Los Angeles–based designer Kristin Victoria Barron is known for a unique blend of mythical and modern elements. Kriest, Barron’s multidisciplinary design studio, works exclusively with a team of exceptional American artisans to execute a broad range of design projects.

From a young age, Barron has been drawn to the visual world. She studied ceramic sculpture and art history at Manhattan’s New York University and received a Master’s degree in Design from Pratt in Brooklyn before working in the fields of art, craft and fine jewelry. Thus began a creative journey that continues to this day, often bridging the worlds of fine art and function.

Taking its name and inspiration from the mythical world, Kriest was founded in 2005. From its inception, the company has become sought after for its quixotic aesthetic, often based on Barron’s dreamlife and dedication to fine craftsmanship. Each piece emerges from the artist’s dream journals, which are transformed from repeated sketches and sculpted forms into individual pieces. In the decade since its founding, the collection - including lighting, objects and vessels has become known for its signature material palette of brass, burled wood and cast bronze.

With their delicate silhouettes and otherworldly evocations, Kristin Victoria Barron’s designs, such as the popular Cenotaph Lamp, have been lauded by the press, designers and architects, and collectors. In addition to The Future Perfect, Barron’s designs have appeared at Design Miami as well as some of the world’s preeminent galleries. Barron’s unerring eye has also made a mark in the interior design world, with a series of successful residences along with commercial projects for clients including Nokia, The New York Times and Wonderland Boutique.
