Design Marfa seems to have missed the opening of a new gallery in Marfa designed by the internationally recognized architects Claesson Koivisto Rune of Stockholm and have not sought to include it in their programming for their upcoming weekend. But we will be here and open to the public!
The gallery opened in May, 2015 to great acclaim in Marfa and in the design media. The project has been included in Dezeen, Interior Design (August 2015) and other publications. The architects were given great latitude to create as they wished. Thus, although the project took nine years to complete, it is the same concept that was first shown to gallery owners Vilis Inde & Tome Jacobs.
Forced perspective, hanging cubes, etc. a beautiful space - Claesson Koivisto Rune's first project on American soil. It will not be the last.
