The recent Desacralized exhibition in Milan by Galerie Philia was one of my highlights of Milan Design Week 2023. The Galeries’ curations are one of the bests I know and always works with outstanding and talented artists.
Now the galerie presents its Summer exhibition in it’s showroom in Chelsea, Manhattan. 10/7/23 – 31/8/23
Located in the heart of the gallery district, this new group show combines some of the most relevant names in the collectible design scene. Curated as a liveable space, the exhibition explores and develops the language of Galerie Philia where organic shapes and noble materials intertwine for a pure and minimalistic result.

Paris Pierre d’ici exhibition
A year after the Design Brut project with the primary school children of the Roya Valley, Galerie Philia organized the “Chantier Partagés” (shared workshops) project with the Société du Grand Paris. The idea behind the project is to work with a regional stone excavated from the new train worksites and create collectible design works in collaboration with local children.
The “Chantier Partagés” are places of exchange and creation.
For several months, the designer Frédéric Saulou and the students from the middle school César Franck worked together to exchange ideas and create pieces, by using the Meulière – an emblematic local stone, that was extracted from the construction site of line 18 of the Grand Paris Express. These Shared Projects have enabled the elaboration of a common reflection around sustainability and the valorization of local resources. They led to the co-creation of a collective functional work carried out by experienced craftsmen.
The “Pierre d’Ici” exhibition presents the extension of this work through a series of sculptural and archaic furniture. It questions the relationship between matter in space and its origin, between the earth and its extraction, in the context of the construction site of the Grand Paris Express.
