Flow Gallery at COLLECT 2020 showcasing PINCH furniture
This year’s Craft Council’s COLLECT show was widely lauded as one of the best to date, not only having moved home to the stately environs of Somerset House, but also because the calibre of craft works was so extremely high, and the growing list of exhibitors so global.
We were delighted to provide furniture as a back drop to the collection of exquisite pieces exhibited by Flow Gallery, having long been admirers of Yvonna Demczynska’s space which opened its doors in London’s Notting Hill in 1999.
Decidedly ahead of the curve Yvonna has worked passionately to create a community of designers and artists whom she represents from across the world, and hosts a rolling programme of exhibitions 6 times a year to showcase their work in her open to the public gallery. For her COLLECT presentation Yvonna enlisted the help of stylist Sania Pell and photographer Beth Evans to bring alive their theme of a collector’s home, and we were delighted to have our furniture accessorised with stunning works by Akiko Hirai, Chinoko Sakamoto and Derek Wilson to name a few.
According to an article in the FT by Dominic Lutyens, the number of people buying handmade objects has doubled in the past year, a sentiment we applaud and appreciate deeply ourselves. When engaging with our furniture we hope our customers can feel the investment of the maker’s hand, as well as our own rigorous design intent in the way the shapes and forms are detailed and finished, and feel in personal spaces they end up calling home.
