Misha Kahn's Furnishing Lends Itself to Adorably Absurd Design

Absurd design is one way to describe Misha Kahn's creations, otherworldly maximalism is another. The creative's 'Just Around the Bend' exhibition is currently on display at the M + B gallery in West Hollywood. The showcase puts the focus on a number of the designer's daring, boundary-challenging furniture — from the multi-colorful intertwined couch to the fur-boosting wall mirror.

With her absurd designs, Misha Kahn challenges form and harmony. Instead of subscribing to the user-friendly, clean-cut, contemporary furniture that is popular today, she engages in a "practice [that] is grounded in contradiction." The silhouettes of her pieces are deeply rooted in challenging the status quo and serve as an expressive tool that enables imagination and involves objects with a character that is "constantly evolving [in] personality."
