Artemest opens first-ever NYC flagship gallery
Italian online marketplace Artemest announced on Tuesday the opening of its first-ever flagship gallery in New York City.
Located in West Chelsea, the 5000-square-foot space will house a rotating series of museum-like exhibitions highlighting the works of niche Italian artisans and makers, and much more.
It opens Thursday, Oct. 13, with a series dubbed 'Blow' highlighting Murano glassblowers. In particular, Caribbean-born artist Bradley Theodore will share his pop-art approach to glassblowing, via his limited-edition collection of Murano glass pieces.
The gallery offers five areas including a gallery, a project room, a sample room, an office space, and a garden where outdoor furniture collections are expected to be showcased as of spring 2023. Moreover, there is a workshop space for architects, interior designers, and private clients to work on projects.
“We want Artemest Galleria to be a space where we can exhibit beautifully made home decor, furniture and lighting by our network of 1,400 Italian artisans,” said Ippolita Rostagno, Artemest founder and creative director.
“A place where we can give life to pieces that interpret traditional maker culture through a contemporary lens. We want Artemest Galleria to be a space for experimentation, enjoyment and surprise for our community.”
Jewelry designer Rostagno founded Artemest in 2015 with Marco Credendino. Today, the company, headquartered in Milan, offers a selection of over 60,000 products handmade by over 1,400 of the most representative Italian artisans and designers.
“Artemest Galleria was envisioned as a cross-functional space where stories are told and where new ones are written, a real hub for our New York community,” added Credendino.
