Luce Artist Biography

Rainer Facklam studied at Düsseldorf's Kunstakademie, where he was recognized as a meisterschuler, or "master pupil," in 1990. His beautifully crafted chests and travel cases recall the luxurious designs of French cabinetmakers in the 1930s, but his work also comments on the new "moneyed class" of today. American artist Red Grooms, who is no stranger to the whimsical and offbeat, has called Facklam the "Jean Cocteau of furniture design . . . elegant, witty and bizarre."
