Carpenters Workshop Gallery produces and exhibits functional sculptures by international rising and already established artists and designers going outside their traditional territories of expression. The gallery 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’.
In 2015 Carpenters Workshop Gallery | New York was opened. This new space confirms today the leadership and dominant position of the gallery in the international territory of art and design..
In 2018 Carpenters Workshop Gallery announced the opening of it’s fourth gallery in San Francisco. Carpenters Workshop Gallery will take up residence in a nearly 9,000-square-foot space on the mezzanine of the Saint Joseph’s Arts Society, a new arts space housed in the former Saint Joseph’s Church, which has been immaculately resurrected by the owner, design impresario Ken Fulk.
