Karl Springer was born in Berlin in 1931. He moved to New York in 1957 and began his career as a book binder, mastering techniques and skills that later would make his designs synonymous with American Luxury and Craftsmanship.
In the early 1960s he established a tiny workshop in Manhattan and started concentrating purely on his furniture designs, taking inspiration from pure, classical designs and translating them into custom made furniture. He demanded the highest level of materials and workmanship using wood, lucite and metals, often customising pieces for specific clients.
