Asher Israelow - Artists - Chamber Gallery

Furniture designer Asher Israelow (New York, 1983) draws on his training in architecture and his love of lore to design objects for the modern explorer. “Furniture and design has always been for me about storytelling and exploration,” says Israelow. “I like to dig into the context of objects before creating new pieces, understanding their history and origins.” His practice is also guided by a deep respect for materials, especially solid wood, which he sources locally. “Trees retain the entire story of their growth within their rings, he says. “Droughts, fires and mineral content of local aquifers can all be seen within the wood after it’s been felled. Their entire lives can be read within one slice.” He has a fine arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, and is based in Brooklyn.
