ANNA KARLIN

Anna Karlin is an English furniture, lighting, jewelry and object designer based in New York. Her studio practice also encompasses set design, digital design, and layout, making her a multi-disciplinary creative. Her pieces have high brow minimalist touch, and each discipline informs the other. Her work is truly exceptional. I first met Anna through a shoot for Whistles, and I decided to revisit her at her new studio in the Lower East Side. She has created a very homey and convivial working space for her team. At the time, she was pregnant with her first child and she was a glowing mother-to-be. 





What is something that I would be surprised to find in your space?
A full working event kitchen.

Describe your ideal workspace in three words…
Beautiful, free spirited, tactile - ok thats 4 ;)

What's the best advice you've been given and from whom?
Being sent a music link to ‘Let it be’ by the Beatles by my friend Lauren Jones.
Where did you find the courage to follow your own path?
It never occurred to me not to. I find it much more risky to have my fate in the hands of others.

What is the most productive practical tip you could impart on to a fellow creative?
Put the hours in and it will pay off.

What themes do you pursue in your work?
The tension between the natural and the man-made.
