Side Gallery, established in Barcelona and founded in November 2015 works with international design of the twentieth century, as well as contemporary design. The gallery focuses on Latin American historical design from countries such as Brasil, Mexico, or Venezuela, primarily concentrating on the work of Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, Luis Barragán, Clara Porset, Antonio Bonet, Gonzalo Córdoba, Miguel Arroyo and Joaquim Tenreiro, but also with a special sensibility for Spanish design of the past century and rare pieces by relevant architects worldwide; a criterion of diversity pursuing a transversal proposal in the design market.
For its contemporary design projects, the gallery invites international designers to re-think design and handcraft traditions, proposing a dialogue between two centuries to develop limited-editions works, commissioned and produced exclusively. The gallery tries to approach to a new generation of designers born after 1980 in order to promote and explore new ways in the design world, focused in the investigation of materials, forms and technicals.
Side Gallery is currently developing publications on the designers it represents, in addition to the exhibition program, contributing to promote the work by architects and designers with these publications but also with lectures frequently about design.
The gallery regularly collaborates with museums, foundations, public institutions and other galleries to support and promote its artists. Besides that, Side Gallery offers advising services in creation and development of design collections.
