    Designed by Ingrid Donat and produced by Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery for Time for Design.

    The Design Museum takes a broad view of design, from mass produced machine made objects and websites to the painterly expressive qualities of Ingrid Donat's work in bronze.

  • Artist Biography

    Ingrid Donat

    Swedish • 1957

    Swedish-born Ingrid Donat has lived and worked in Paris since 1975, when she moved there to study sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts. Encounters with Sylva Bernt (the companion of André Arbus) and Diego Giacometti introduced her to the art of cast bronze furniture. Working in this most ancient of artistic media, and drawing inspiration from Art Deco design, Gustav Klimt patterning and tribal tattoos, Donat blends traditional sources to craft refreshingly original and evocative furniture that invites closer inspection.
