Studio Isabell Gatzen pays tribute to Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher, who is known for his mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints. Its latest collection of furniture captures the surreal quality of his work in a way that is at once approachable and practical. Of course, at its core, the designs are subtly surreal since they play on optical illusions.

Dubbing the collection DEBUT, Studio Isabell Gatzen ensures that the pieces are as simple as they are imaginative. This ensures that the sculptural elements can be incorporated inside just about any living space. Comprised of tables, mirrors, bowls and more, the DEBUT collection introduces artistic touches that nevertheless complement existing home decor. Overall, Studio Isabell Gatzen focused on a black and white palette with some gold accents.
