Quinze’s genius lies in his ability to fuse polar extremes – passion and chaos with controlled elegance. He masterfully creates immaculate, urbane and polished designs that are balanced with a certain contradicting tension, giving them a refined yet exuberant appearance. He realises his ideas with extraordinary verve and is able to apply them to projects of any scale, whether it be architecture, interior design, urban planning, furniture design, car design or footwear.
This publication is the first monograph to document Arne Quinze’s full creative universe from the past, present and future. The book showcases celebrated projects including furniture collections he has created for Quinze & Milan, where he is the creative director, Moroso and concept cars for Lamborghini, colossal wooden Uchronia sculpture at the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert, his recent monumental Cityscape sculpture project in Brussels’ Quartier Louise and more.
Over 40 projects are presented with lavish photographs, personal sketches and accompanied by incisive texts giving insight into Quinze’s cosmos. Dazzling but never flamboyant, Quinze is undeniably one of the most ambitious and influential individuals in the creative scene today.
