A Clash of Centuries: STEINITZ & CARPENTERS WORKSHOP at Design Miami/ Basel

Sarah Bochicchio

13 June 2013

In the name of both intellectual skirmish and colloquy, Steinitz Gallery and Carpenters Workshop Gallery decided to collaborate at this year’s Design Miami/ Basel. From the Steinitz side, there are works from the 17th- and 19-centuries, including the 18th-century Parisian “Hercules Table.” Carpenters Workshop will provide 20th- and 21st-century contrast in the form of a polished bronze cat (2013) and other contemporary works.

Thrown into new context, viewers need to edit their perceptions of antiques and contemporary art and consider the practicality of the objects as items for purchase and use in their own homes. The collaborative booth is a must-see if you’re in Basel, successfully blurring divisions, redefining art and design.

Pod of Drawers

A family endeavor, Steinitz Gallery was founded in 1968 by “le prince des antiquaires,” Bernard Steinitz, with his son to follow in his footsteps. The gallery is known for its unique objects, historical rarities, and theatrical displays at antique fairs and in collaboration with museums such as the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Jerusalem Museum as well as the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. 

Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents “functional sculptures” and contemporary design. The gallery involves itself in each step of the process, from early development to the finished project in order to help produce category-defying, innovative work.
