Makma Art Gallery and 1865 La Maison Present a Living Gallery of Art in a Special Exhibition
Makma Art Gallery and 1865 La Maison have announced a captivating collaboration, inviting visitors to embark on a journey of artistic expression and design with a special exhibition at the 1865 La Maison Gallery showroom, on public display from 10 January 2024.
Featuring unique pieces from Makma Art Gallery, the curated space offers a distinctive experience – a living gallery of art, showcasing glass and crystal pieces from leading artisans of the 19th and 20th centuries. Centred around the theme of ‘Home Jewels’, the vibrant display of vivid and dazzling coloured pieces represents an intersection of art and interior design.
Makma Art Gallery’s extensive collection mirrors the centuries-old history of glass and crystal manufacturing. Focusing on European master craftsmen who reinterpreted traditional Islamic glass and crystal art, the gallery bridges the gap between the past and present. It presents unique pieces from Europe’s leading glass and crystal houses, particularly from Bohemia, through a fresh and modern lens.
Alia Sefrioui, Founder of Makma Art Gallery, which has its permanent gallery space in Abu Dhabi, noted: “It is an honour to partner with 1865 La Maison to bring our shared passion for beautiful interiors, design and art to audiences in the region. The delicate translucency and vibrant colours of our glass pieces complement the contemporary and classic furniture on display at 1865 La Maison. This partnership follows our mission to build a hub for artistic and cultural exchange through Makma Art Gallery that blurs the lines between tradition and modernity, connecting people through a shared identity.”
1865 La Maison, a modern homeware brand, celebrates the heritage and culture of design. It aims to bring together a global family of artisans, preserving and showcasing their specialised design skills and talents.
Commenting on the Maison’s design vision, Lubna Allana, Founder and Creative Director of 1865 La Maison, said: “Nature and environment are the best sources of inspiration, it’s the unique curiosity of the designer, artisan or craftsmen to illustrate and interpret a creative style.”
Ms Allana oversees the design process from ethical material sourcing to the creation of bespoke pieces. The Maison’s modern heirloom pieces blend with contemporary and classic furniture, creating a visually stunning environment.
Visitors are invited to join a journey of artistic synergy and visit the collaborative showcase between 10 AM and 6.30 PM at the 1865 La Maison Gallery showroom located at Tiffany Towers, RO3, JLT, Cluster W, Dubai.
