Founded in 2005 by interior designer Kristin Victoria Barron, Kriest is a creative studio focusing on lighting and decorative objects inspired by both mythical archetypes and Kristin’s own dreams. Working in her signature brass and burled wood, Kristin’s designs are delicate, unexpected and have an otherworldly appeal.
After studying ceramic sculpture and art history as an undergrad at New York University, Kristin moved on to craft elaborate puppets based on the analysis of a Jungian dream expert. She then honed her sculptural craft studying under celebrated jeweler and painter Vladimir Rodin.
Kriest is based in Pine Plains, New York.
