Salon 94 Design
Since 2002, Salon 94 has hosted exhibitions of innovative art and design. In addition to representing the work of emerging and renowned artists, Salon 94 produces exhibitions that challenge the traditional boundaries among fine art, functional objects, and decorative arts. In 2004 Salon 94 began to work with Casa Mollino, showing their infamous 1960s Polaroids. In years following Salon 94 highlighted the architecture and furniture of Casa del Sole, Mollino’s modern alpine design in Cervinia, Italy. In 2008 the gallery invited London-based furniture and product designer Martino Gamper to reassemble discarded and salvaged chairs from Mollino’s Lutrario Ballroom. Along with the Estate of Carlo Mollino, Salon 94 represents contemporary designers Kueng Caputo, ceramicist Betty Woodman, landscape designer Paula Hayes, and the ceramics of Takuro Kuwata, as well as the furniture of Rick Owens. They have also exhibited the work of Sebastian Errazuriz, Karl Fritsch, Martino Gamper, Takeshi Miyakawa, and Kara Hamilton. Salon 94 collaborates with renowned luminaries in other fields to produce new furniture and design. Recently they curated an exhibition of contemporary ceramics that included a store of objects, jewelry, and dishware. They co-organized a show and pop-up shop with London-based fashion designer Duro Olowu, which featured his couture clothing as well as photography, textiles, contemporary art, furniture, music, books, and objets trouvés. This past fall Salon 94 installed Show and Tell: Calder Jewelry and Mobiles. In 2010, in collaboration with Rudy Weissenberg, Salon 94 presented a bedroom interior composed of the brutalist, luxurious furniture of Paris-based fashion designer Rick Owens. They have collaborated at Design Miami/ Basel and a solo show in New York for Kueng Caputo.
