In Collaboration with Twenty First Gallery

31/05/2019 - 16/07/2019

Location :
Twenty First Gallery - 76 Franklin Street, New York NY 10003, USA

Twenty First Gallery, in collaboration with Parisian based gallery, Galerie Gosserez, is pleased to present the first NYC solo exhibition of artist and designer Valentin Loellmann. The German-born artist is renowned for his meticulous construction of material, texture and shapes, resulting in dream-like furnishings that perfectly blend form, feeling and function. The exhibition also marks the first time Valentin Loellmann will travel to New York City to introduce a selection of his expressive pieces ranging over several collections. Valentin Loellmann’s Solo Show will open to the public on May 31 and runs through July 19, 2019 at Twenty First Gallery (76 Franklin Street, New York, NY 10013).

Highlights of the exhibit include Valentin Loellmann’s Steps 1x12, a sculptural staircase of mirror polished stainless steel and crotch walnut; Blue Brass, a stunning coffee table in resin and massive brass; Brass bench in walnut and massive brass; Copper sideboard in charred wood and patinated copper; and Steps 2/6 in copper and charred walnut. Valentin Loellmann likes to think of his work as rhizomatic in the sense that it bursts from an underground net of lines until it creates a shape. These shapes are constantly evolving into new works, so that he never knows exactly what they are going to be.
