Back in Brooklyn | Karkula

March 6, 2013
description
The design store Karkula has returned to its Brooklyn roots: its new home in Williamsburg officially opens tomorrow, at 98 South 4th Street, with an exhibition of chandeliers by Michelle James and jewelry by Monica Castiglioni. The store’s owner, the designer John Erik Karkula, co-founded the Brooklyn design object shop Breukelen in 1996 before moving to Manhattan and opening Karkula, where he was an early supporter of emerging talent like Jim Zivic and Lindsey Adelman, first in the meatpacking district, and later in TriBeCa. The new shop, which was designed by Karkula and the Brooklyn-based architect Philipp Mohr, now represents European brands like e15, Bocci and Nanimarquina, as well as its owner’s designs. Karkula maintains that he has always kept a low profile on New York’s design scene. “I thought it was cool to be under the radar,” he said. But that might not be so easy now.

98 South 4th Street, Brooklyn, N.Y.; (212) 645-2216; karkula.com.
