The Carpenters Workshop Gallery transcends classical categorizations in terms of art and design. Its vocation, at the crossroads of these two universes, is to produce and exhibit functional sculptures, created by artists or designers emerging from their traditional territories of expression. The gallery accompanies and represents international artists or designers who are either emerging or established by becoming involved in the research and production of the works it exhibits in Limited Edition. The choices are guided by the search for emotional, artistic and historical relevance.
