Carpenters Workshop Gallery transcends classical borders in terms of art and design. Its proposal stands just at the intersection of these two universes: reaching precisely a symbiosis of art and design. The Gallery produces and exhibits functional sculptures by international rising and already established artists and designers going outside their traditional territories of expression. It is actively involved in the research and production of the limited edition works exhibited. The choices are guided by the research of an emotional, artistic and historical relevance; a relevance that appears as an evidence.
The gallery relies on the partnership of childhood friends, Julien Lombrail & Loic Le Gaillard. They first opened a space in London’s Chelsea in 2006 in a former carpenter’s workshop; they then followed with a second space in Mayfair in 2008. The opening of a 600 square metre space in Paris in 2011 in the heart of Le Marais district, an address steeped in history as it was previously occupied by the Galerie de France for several decades, was a return to their roots.
2015 marks a major turning point for Carpenters Workshop Gallery with the opening of "Carpenters Workshop | Roissy", a 8,000 m² space unique globally, dedicated to research dedicated to artistic research and development, bringing together the elite of artisans, an homage to the heritage to French ‘Arts Décoratifs’.
Carpenters Workshop Gallery in New York is the lastest step in the gallery’s remarkable development. This new space confirms today the leadership and dominant position of the gallery in the international territory of art and design.
