Description

The ever-transforming relationship between humans and nature compelled artist-writer Robert Smithson, who died in a plane crash in 1973 while surveying one of his grand site-specific works in Texas. In the spirit of this American maverick's work, Artless founder Alejandro Artigas created the ARS collection, an acronym for "After Robert Smithson." The solid oak or walnut tabletop is smoothed and angled to belie its brawny weight. The supporting steel is laser cut and then welded to achieve the torqued effect. "I actually designed these pieces many years before being able to make them," he shares, "as the metal laser cutter costs around a million dollars and I did not know anyone who would work with me." A final powder-finish coats the steel, again imbuing an otherwise raw material with effortless appeal.

Brand

Artless Corporation

DTLA, the acronym for downtown Los Angeles, is still an epicenter of hand craftsmanship and time-honored techniques in a warren of specialized factories. A standout is Artless Corporation—the brainchild of designer/entrepreneur Alejandro Artigas (known to all as Alex)—where his modernist furniture is made by a small and highly skilled team of craftsmen. Slow furniture, as it were, meant to last for generations. The company manifesto puts it succinctly: “Artless is most interested in how durability, functionality, and aesthetics work together towards our everyday well being.”

In a bit of creative alchemy, Alex is also the brother of fellow A+R favorite, jewelry designer Gabriela Artigas, and her sister and business partner Tere. Grandchildren of renowned Mexico City architect Francisco Artigas, it would seem that some things, like ingenuity and craftsmanship, just run in some families. Also subtlety, and a fine sense of proportion in all things, evident in another Alex credo: “Artless is after the new, the new that doesn't scream it.”
