SIDE GALLERY
OCT 14 2015 - FEB 12 2016

Side Gallery was established in Barcelona and founded in November 2015. The exhibition UNO was the gallery’s inaugural exhibition. The show mixed a combination of international design of the twentieth century, as well as contemporary design, focusing on historical design from Latin America and Italy, primarily concentrating on the work of designers Lina Bo Bardi and Gio Ponti, exploring their inter-relationship and their processes of creation, when back in the forties a young Lina Bo Bardi joined the Gio Ponti Studio who was already a star architect and a well known publisher through his work in Domus Magazine, whose influence on modern Italian architecture is incontestable. The combination of these two designers’ masters of lightness and material production revealed Side Gallery’s taste for iconic design.

In the gallery exhibition UNO, the work “Seeing Glass” by artist Sabine Marcelis was of particular interest. The gallery tried to approach to a new generation of designers in order to promote and explore new sensations of the design world, focusing on the investigation of materials, forms and techniques. The Seeing Glass series made in collaboration with Brit van Nerven looked haphazard because of their hand-drawn shape, but also futuristic thanks to a spectacular gradient surface, a complex effect created by using multiple layers of glass, mirror, and foil.
