New York’s Takashimaya Building has welcomed a new resident: the Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The exhibition space resides in the top two floors of the building, and is the first Carpenters Workshop outpost in North America. As regular contributors to Design Miami and the Salon Art + Design art fair, French founders and childhood friends Julien Lombrail and Loïc Le Gaillard have curated a collection of signature works emblematic of a diverse background of artists. At their new Fifth Avenue location, a solo show by Maarten Baas is currently running. With the private salon’s bird’s-eye view of the Manhattan skyline, natural light, high ceilings, and minimalist design, the luxurious space provides the ideal setting to get lost within the gallery’s art.
