David Gill Galleries
David Gill is arguably the most interesting design gallery in the world. The gallery was established in London in 1987. After many years of dedication to the best pieces of unique design and quality, the gallery has become a place of reference for design lovers and collectors.
The first gallery which opened in Fulham Road made an impact on collectors with its selection of works signed by the international masters of design history, from Emile Rhulmann to Eileen Gray, Diego Giacometti to Donald Judd. After this success, David Gill decided to involve himself in the production of new pieces in limited collections commissioned to relevant designers of the moment, solidifying his reputation as a leader of innovation in the contemporary design world. David Gill started this new venture with French duo Garouste-Bonetti in 1988, the moment when they were the darlings of the design world. This first collection was followed by working with other equally important designers, both in one-off pieces or limited editions, such as Tom Dixon, Ron Arad or Marc Newson who named a chair after the gallerist.
In 1997, David Gill opened his second exhibition space in Vauxhall to house an ever growing collection of new pieces. In 2007, he produced the installation Dune for the Venice Biennale, a project by renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
David Gill has curated exhibitions with museums and galleries worldwide and has been honoured with the title of the Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for his constant attention to detail and involvement in the world of art and design.
