David Gill Gallery was filled with the cream of the British art and design worlds as avant guard British designers Fredrikson Stallard threw open the doors to their latest body of work entitled Gravity.Tables that resembled blocks of ice seemed to float above the floor, dining tables that sat atop crumpled sheets of metal and red chairs that appeared like stunning velvet covered rocks. It is over 10 years since the duo first came to attention of the international art world and their work has since been collected by institutions such as the V&A and Design Museum in London and MOMA in New York.
They have worked with the likes of Gieves and Hawkes and recently collaborated with other prominent brands.Gallerist David Gill was delighted to announce, at private dinner at Little House Mayfair later that evening, that Species II had been purchased by San Francisco MOMA and will take pride of place when the museum re-opens in May 2016. Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard began their collaboration in 1995 and have since become internationally recognized as leading exponents of British avant-garde design. They are well known for their ability to translate their creativity into simple yet emotionally engaging furniture and product design. Their cutting edge, conceptually rigorous work has been regularly discussed and praised in the design press and is sought after by both collectors and furniture producers.
