CHRISTINA Z ANTONIO

Christina Z Antonio creates artistic furniture and objects using diverse and precious materials. A trained master-craftsman in multiple mediums, Christina works intuitively, pushing the boundaries of traditional leather, parchment, wood and metal. Working from her studio in Chelsea, New York, she brings together a variety of techniques and intricate detail to her work by layering, carving and painting the surface, while maintaining a refined and sophisticated finish. The function of each piece is equally meaningful for Christina and she often integrates internal mechanisms that she engineers herself. Christina and her team of skilled artisans have produced furniture and installations for interior designers and architects as well as luxury hotels. Art, time-honored craftsmanship, as well as materials and execution of the highest quality are the principles that continue to imbue her work.
Christina Antonio may be third generation in her family to achieve excellence in leather artistry, but she is the first one to infuse it with an expertise in parchment, wood, and metal. Nowadays, her furniture oeuvre consists of four lines of hardware and much-coveted limited-edition pieces. What's next from Christina Z Antonio is what we're all waiting for.
