PHILIP MICHAEL WOLFSON

Philip Michael Wolfson, born 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, studied at Cornell University, School of Architecture, Ithaca, New York and the Architectural Association, London, England. His subsequent collaboration with the studio of Zaha Hadid at the outset of her career, leading design teams on numerous projects, spanned some 20 years.

Since setting up his studio in 1991, Wolfson has worked throughout Europe and the USA on residential interiors and functional art pieces shown at leading international art and design exhibitions.

He has established his distinctive pathway, re-examining the forms and ideas of the early 20th century Modernist movements, particularly Constructivism and Futurism. His unique approach to design and art is informed by the dynamics of fracture and fragmentation layering and manipulating his materials into fluid shapes and forms, where the dynamics of light, shadow and reflection are an integral part of the seduction of the work.

The exquisite use of noble materials, as well as new materials, brings dynamic elegance and an individual contemporary feeling that enhances his unique approach.
