This week, we’re showing you what’s brand new from Byredo, Related Companies, Zadig & Voltaire, and La Cornue.
Related Companies has announced the recent opening of its new gallery spaces, High Line Nine, in New York. Located adjacent to Zaha Hadid’s first residential development in Chelsea, just beneath the High Line, the space boasts galleries ranging from 650—1,800 square feet, created with a similar concept to cooperative European gallerias. A hybrid between a museum, art fair, showroom, and gallery, High Line Nine will eventually include other offerings like a café and a wine bar, acting as a hub for many gallerists, artists, and public visitors to converse and experience culture.
Luxury kitchen brand La Cornue has partnered with Parisian street artist, Kongo, to create a line of six one-of-a-kind Chateau 150 model stoves. Designed for the six distinct regions where the brand is sold (Paris, Europe, Asia, Australia, U.S.A, and the Middle East), each of the different pieces feature a unique, brightly-colored graffiti work in Kongo’s signature graffiti style. And this October, La Cornue will debut a U.S.-based installation of the collaboration in the Middleby Residential Showroom at the Chicago Merchandise Mart.
Zadig & Voltaire debuted a celebratory installation of Cuban artist, Hector Frank, at the brand’s new flagship location in the Miami Design District. Presented in collaboration with Toth Gallery, the body of work presented in the store showcases the connections between contemporary art and high-end fashion, while touching upon the relationship between Frank’s Cuban roots and Miami’s culture. The exhibit is on view at the store through October 20.
Byredo opened its first official European flagship with a celebratory evening held during London Fashion Week. Guests arrived at the retail space in London’s Soho district via Byredo black cabs, later enjoying cocktails and dinner with food by chef Daniel de la Falaise. In addition to a full range of products (including eyewear, leather goods, fragrance, and beauty), the two-floor flagship includes a 1,000-square-foot gallery space, which will host special events and exhibit works by other creatives.
