Modernity hosts an exhibition with Stephen Friedman Gallery in London, opening online from 18th January

Modernity opened its London doors in February 2020 to a showroom within a Palladian mansion of 7 000 square feet in Marylebone filled with the best of Nordic Design: furniture, textiles, lighting and art.

Modernity has invited Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, to present prime pieces of contemporary works of art, with an emphasis on works by two of Sweden’s foremost artists, Mamma Andersson and Andreas Eriksson. Since the opening in February, Modernity has restocked the house with a range of new pieces. Included in our new selection is a rare ’Snowflake’ ceiling lamp by Paavo Tynell and an early model of the iconic Chieftain chair by Finn Juhl. We also have a range of smaller objects available to see, including a rare ceramic vase by Axel Salto.

“We find it interesting to collaborate with other galleries that complement our collection of furniture, textile and lighting. Art is a natural part of everyone’s home, and our pieces from the Nordic countries work very well with the art that Stephen Friedman Gallery presents”, says Andrew Duncanson, director and owner of Modernity.

“Works from artists Stephen represents will be placed alongside ours in what should be a spectacle for the eye. We have created immersive rooms where our visitors can appreciate a curated ensemble of 20th Century Nordic design, as well as experience the pieces in their natural place – a domestic setting. By incorporating pieces from Stephen Friedman, you extend this experience further”, says Sebastien Holt, director in London.

The exhibition will be open virtually from 18th January, with a date to open in person TBC. Our online viewing room will contain a selection of beautiful imagery, a video tour, a virtual walkthrough tour and the opportunity to book a private walkthrough with one of us via Zoom.

More information will be released in the coming weeks.
