Besides maintaining our much-frequented showroom in central Stockholm, Modernity has continuously supplied pieces to international collectors and museums, for example, to the MoMA and Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York, the LACMA in Los Angeles and the National Museum in Stockholm.
Modernity is a regular exhibitor at various international art and design shows in London, New York, Paris and at home in Stockholm. Andrew Duncanson, the owner and director of Modernity, regularly holds lectures on issues surrounding 20th Century Design and is often called upon to advise private collectors. Andrew has been a member of the jury for the Swedish Design Association's annual exhibition at Stockholm's Museum of Architecture. He is also a member of the selection committee at the prestigious Pavilion of Art & Design fairs in London and Paris.
Modernity is a member of the Swedish Art & Antique Association, and consequently also a member of the International Art and Antique Association CINOA.
Modernity opened a London office in September 2019, within walking distance of Mayfair's major galleries. Since February 2020 Modernity has had a gallery space in a Palladian style mansion on Cavendish Square, and has now opened a new gallery in London's Notting Hill. Sebastien Holt acts as the UK director and will help strengthen Modernity’s presence in London and Paris.
The Modernity team is glad to answer any questions you might have about our pieces or about their possible transports. If you are unable to physically visit the gallery in Stockholm, you can call us or email. Foreign payments can be made by wire transfer or credit card. The buyer will be asked to cover the costs of transport, we do, however, assist with the organisation of packing and shipping.
Our website is updated regularly, but please let us know if you would like to be added to our web mailing list, click here. You will then receive an email as soon as new pieces are available for purchase.
