Fine Art Auctioneers Phillips de Pury & Company Open New York Shop

Phillips de Pury & Company announced the début of the New York retail shop at the flagship 450 Park Avenue galleries. The curated program reflects Phillips de Pury & Company’s expertise in design, contemporary art, photography, editions, and jewelry, and exemplifies Phillips de Pury’s role as today’s contemporary arts arbiter.

London based design studio, Glass Hill (Markus Bergström & Joe Nunn) was commissioned to design the space and has devised an intelligent, modular, system that allows for flexibility and reinvention while adhering to the simple, linear values for which the studio is renowned. The result provides a dynamic platform for Phillips de Pury to exhibit and sell the work of today’s leading designers and artists.

The shop features work from three nominees for this year’s Brit Insurance Design Awards; Seongyong Lee and Nendo in the best furniture design category and Max Lamb for J&L Lobmeyr in the best Product Design Category. Lee’s Plytube series, a rift on traditional cardboard tubing, innovated both a new architectural material and language of joinery. Nendo’s Thin Black Lines series, first exhibited in 2010 at Phillips de Pury in London’s Saatchi Gallery, is a poetic homage to Japanese calligraphy and it’s representation of condensed meaning. Lamb’s Quarz glasses produced by J. & L. Lobmeyr reference the perfect hexagonal structures that form when a quartz crystal’s growth is uninhibited.
