David Gill Gallery is one of the most renowned design galleries around the world. Its begging takes us back to 1987 when David Gill inaugurated his first gallery on London’s Fulham Road. Ever since, he exhibited works by some of the world’s most famous artists, such as Jean Cocteau, Giacometti, Yves Klein, and Henri Matisse.
The ever first piece the artist sold included historic pieces by Le Corbusier, Jean-Michel Frank, and Mies Van Der Rohe. The collaboration with other artists was always present in the gallery’s history, as he began to work with designers, artists, and architects to set a new principle of limited edition pieces. Design Limited Edition brings you a curated selection of 10 modern coffee tables presented at David Gill Gallery, that are true works of art!
