Located on the third floor of a historical building, the apartment has been a victim of a dramatic change. Reimagined with the designer’s and friends’ works, the new art gallery now includes collectible furniture, decorative lighting, ceramics, and original artworks.
With the desire to find opportunities for inspirational moments and collaboration at a time when they would be confined, the pair knew that others were experiencing the same feelings. They came up with a brief that they would invite other artists to participate in the upcoming art gallery.

The transformation of this apartment into an art gallery had the pleasure to have amazing artists and designers like Minjae Kim, R and Company, Wayne Payte, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Atelier Jouffre, Gabriella Picon, and Sharktooth included in the whole process.
In order to make this new art gallery even more special and unique, some of the pieces you can find in it were designed especially for this exquisite project.
“It was very interesting to push these guys to create new pieces.” – Olivier Garcé
One of the most striking pieces created for this project was a coffee table with three carved wood legs and a pink-glazed surface, designed by Felton. This furniture piece sits in front of a fireplace, side by side with a side chair and rocking chair, also designed by the same designer.
Even though things have had to change over time, due to a new surprise in the designer‘s personal life, the concept will continue in the future. Garcé has bought a new apartment in Lisbon, that he plans to transform, as well, in an art gallery.
