A MATTER OF TIME

HAROW

7th Sep 2017

From street art to serigraphy, sculpture, tattoo and graphism, Harold Sangouard, aka HAROW, is a multi-disciplinary artist, and a major emerging talent in contemporary design. His inspirations stem from pop culture references which he interprets in a refined way; often his designs manifest as physical metaphors from a significant moment in history. HAROW’s best known piece is the Skull Chair, which was first released in 2013 and subsequently made available in 24 carat gold and ruby red. Since the chair’s global success and recognition as a design icon, HAROW has gone on to create much more in the same weird, wonderful, beautiful vein.

HAROW’s resolute passion for history plays a huge part in the concept of his creations. Laid out on a timeline, it becomes quite evident how every piece relates to a particular moment in time, ranging from 2560 BC to 1998. His Kheops collection is an homage to the first of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. His Skull Armchair refers to the crystal skulls of Maya predilections. The Arnold Iconic Stool (bearing a strinking resemblance to the stern visage of Mr Schwarzenegger himself) is a tribute to the human representation of the American dream – lending itself to 1947, Arnie's birth-year. And his Apollo Landscapes are a tribute to the 1969 NASA Apollo missions. Together, along with the rest of HAROW’s creations, these iconic designs create an allegorical timeline which is both nostalgic and avant-garde.
