GALLERY FUMI(1 articles)
established in 2008 by sam pratt and valerio capo, gallery FUMI focuses on high-level, conceptually, and aesthetically audacious designers and artists; each encompassing the value of craftsmanship, traditional techniques, and innovative technologies. objects are usually handmade by the designer in a small workshop. many use traditional techniques such as carving, glassblowing, cabinetry, lacquering, and meticulous hand assemblage. the directors have built enduring creative relationships with institutions, interior designers, and collectors alike, and have gained a reputation for applying a very personal and original touch in their selection and curation. they marry a close understanding of the potential of their designers with a keen knowledge of the market to commission exclusive, low-volume, limited-edition works. the gallery runs an ambitious programme of exhibitions alongside a presence at international design fairs including PAD london, nomad, salon art + design, design miami and FOG design.
