Lara Bohinc MBE studied Industrial Design at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, and her art furniture pieces are inspiring novelties in the design field.
After graduation she won British Fashion Council’s New Generation Award and launched her own studio. She was senior design consultant for Cartier for over a decade and worked with Montblanc, Lanvin and Gucci amongst others.
A mark of her work is versatility. A passionate believer in the universality of good design, she made the most of opportunities to bridge the divide between jewellery, objects and furniture.
Bohinc’s ability to create work of everlasting beauty is rooted in her familiarity with industrial processes. While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has also drawn on her knowledge of industrial techniques, fusing modernity of style with function to achieve a contemporary elegance. The same principles apply in all of her designs – use of the finest materials, and an obsession with deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form. Overall, Bohinc’s signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine.
