Introduced to the world of design in 2016, Brian Chaaban, has spent the past few years curating a collection of premium bronze-wares. 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.
Capturing and preserving this natural energy has been the ethos behind each piece in our bronze line, most of which start 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 hand patinate each piece until it is then ready to be released into the world for adornment.
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 is to be equally sculptural and functional. Chaaban’s work can be found displayed in showrooms spanning the United States
