The space in Linienstrasse 87, Berlin Mitte, will be dedicated exclusively to ‘contemporary design where it interfaces with contemporary art’, according to co-founder and director Martin Rinderknecht.
Rinderknecht, who has set up the gallery with Petra Helm, says, ‘Art and design are mutually inspiring and enriching creative fields to guide form, function and content.’
Coinciding with Art Forum Berlin, the city’s international art fair, the inaugural exhibition will be Chairs and Fireworks, by Catalan designer Marti Guixe.
The exhibition will include a series of chairs by the designer – three of which will be seen for the first time at the gallery with a series of illustrations.
Rinderknecht says the exhibition will explore ‘tension created between free installation-based and classic product design’, setting the tone for future exhibitions at the gallery.
Helmrinderknecht will work with ‘internationally established designers and young upcoming design talents’, according to the owners. Prototypes, unique pieces and installations will feature in future exhibitions.
