The doors opened to the public on August 16th, after one and a half years in the Palladian mansion on Cavendish Square, which is now closed for an extensive restoration.
”Our new gallery space will be a very visible showroom open on a daily basis. It is in a bustling location with an interesting collection of independent stores and galleries, and I believe Modernity will be a brilliant addition to the area” says Andrew Duncanson, founder of Modernity.
“Ever since we started working on the building in early July, we have had numerous residents and passers-by commenting on how delighted they are to see this magnificent space being brought back to life. We feel the community will really embrace what Modernity has to offer, and we hope that the new gallery will become an integral part of the high street” says Sebastien Holt, UK Director for Modernity.
Modernity will continue to exhibit a wide range of iconic furniture, textiles, lighting, ceramics, and also jewellery by the most important 20th Century Nordic designers, including Alvar Aalto, Paavo Tynell, Märta Måås-Fjetterström, Kaare Klint, and Hans Wegner to name just a few.
