Introduced to the world of design in 2016, Brian Chaaban, has spent the past few years curating a collection of premium bronzewares. Pulling inspiration from the natural beauty surrounding his hometown of Los Angeles, his self-titled collection “CHAABAN”, focuses on forms, shapes and details found in nature.
“I have always been drawn to the outdoors– whether it be through hiking trails or swimming in the ocean, there is such an indescribably tranquil energy about our natural world” – Brian
Capturing and preserving this natural energy has been the ethos behind each piece in our bronze line, all of which begin from a hand carved block of wood. Upon perfecting the wood model, the piece finds its next form when cast in solid bronze, using a nearly 6000 year old method known as lost wax casting. Once cast, we painstakingly finish and hand patinate the piece, until it is then ready to be released into the world to begin its curious dialogue with its new surroundings.
Artistic inspiration for the collection is drawn from the raw and brutalist styles of Paul Evans, Harry Balmer as well as modernism sculptures of the late Barbara Hepworth. The intention for each work in our collection is to be equally sculptural and functional.
