Emmanuel Babled - Console Osmosi, Furniture 5
In a departure from the traditional white cube exhibition format, Twenty First Gallery debuts an intimate townhouse space in West Chelsea. The 1,000 square foot exhibition space presents furniture and design objects within the context of an elegant, private residence. The location also features an inviting garden terrace.
The inaugural exhibition of Twenty First Gallery’s townhouse – on view May 13 through June 10, 2016 – presents a selection of furniture, lighting, and design objects by French designer Emmanuel Babled. Exhibited in the U.S. for the first time, the pieces exemplify the designer's innovations with classic materials, including Murano glass and Carrara marble, using state-of-the-art technology and refined production processes that challenge traditional design methods and yield meaningful and unexpected results.
Twenty First Gallery Founder and Director Renaud Vuaillat says, “We are delighted to introduce Emmanuel Babled to a New York audience and honored to feature his body of work as the premiere exhibition in our exquisite new townhouse. Showcasing an artist within the context of an authentic interior is fresh way to engage with contemporary design.”
