Brief Biography:
Karl Springer was one of the greatest contemporary furniture stylists of the 20th century. His unique blending of sophistication and crudeness made his work the most imitated during the 1970's and 1980's. Karl was born in 1931 in Berlin. After the war, he immigrated to New York and became the top window dresser at Lord & Taylor Department Store. With the support of his good friend, he created his own line of desk accessories and small furniture and began selling it through Henri Bendel's. It was an instant success and he quickly opened a small atelier on East 52nd Street on the emerging "Boutique Row." Designers flocked to his shop and were charmed by his personality and his work. He soon started taking commissions for larger and more important pieces. He developed a network of Artisans with incredible skill in exotic finishes. He always demanded the highest quality of materials and workmanship. Karl later brought in his brother Joachim and the business expanded rapidly as news of his extraordinary furniture spread through the design community. The exclusive line was represented in the finest showrooms in Chicago, Los Angeles, Texas, Florida, Germany and Japan.rnKarl passed away in mid 1991, leaving an incredible design legacy. He was honored with a one man show at New York School of Interior Design in 1994. His original pieces are in great demand today.
