LA's Furth Yashar & Celebrates Peter Lane

Last Friday, Furth Yashar & invited an intimate group of guests to celebrate its latest undertaking. Furth Yashar &, a traveling homage to experimental design conceived by designer Oliver M. Furth and creative consultant Sean Yashar, summoned its loyal following to Spago in Beverly Hills for the the unveiling of a new Peter Lane monograph. Design world insiders like Kelly Wearstler, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Sharon Johnston, Richard Shapiro, Jane Hallworth, and Adair Curtis crowded into Wolfgang Puck's buzzy bistro to flip through the New York artist's self-titled volume over plates of seasonal Californian cuisine. 

Peter Lane: CLAY offers a survey of the artist's illustrious career, spotlighting his more well-known large-scale works—including a nearly 100-foot, wall-mounted installation at Paris's Hôtel de Crillon that is Lane's largest work to date—alongside his more diminutive decorative works. The monograph also examines the ceramicist's many collaborations—including one with architect Peter Marino and another with Parisian designer Chahan Minassian—as well as site-specific projects for the likes of Chanel, Tiffany, and Dior. The monograph—and the memorable evening that marked its release—offers admirers of Lane's work the chance to dig deeper into the ceramicist's many influences and creative intentions.
