About Misha Kahn
Misha Kahn is absurd, disheveled, spontaneous and eclectic. Whether you’re taking in his designs or sculptures, exploring a work by Kahn is a bit like stepping into a world that’s part Willy Wonka, part Neverending Story, part Chronicles of Narnia. Large-scale chandeliers, highly textured tapestries, over-the-top furniture, and extravagant, printed wallpapers lend a retro-futuristic vibe to Kahn’s work. His symphonies of color are both nostalgic and fantastical – you’ll want to look everywhere and at everything at once. Kahn is highly experimental in both his technique and his materials of choice, using everything from concrete and aluminum to paint, resin, hand-blown glass and even grass. Nothing is off-limits when it comes to exploration in Kahn’s work; his projects range from climbing walls for cats, an underwater playground – to funky-functional housewares and accessories. His work has appeared in W, The New York Times, Architectural Digest and Surface magazine, and has been exhibited at the Friedman Benda gallery and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
