EXPERIMENTAL AND OUT OF THE ORDINARY DESIGN
Marion Friedmann has been a design advocate for more than twenty years, working as a curator, collector, art-advisor and consultant. Marion Friedmann Gallery/London launched in 2011 and merges a penchant for the avant-garde with a passion to celebrate and promote the most remarkable emerging and established contemporary designers. The media acclaimed show `Enlightened Waste ́ marked the beginning of the gallery’s trajectory as an ambassador for international design with an established focus on Mexico and Latin America. Her featured talents were brought to the spotlight in various gallery exhibitions between London, Austria, Milan and Mexico City, as well as in a blockbuster museum exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in New York about contemporary Latin American design.
The gallery operates through a nomadic system of bold pop-up exhibitions and represents vanguard limited edition design. Within the portfolio and the artists and designers the gallery represents you can find a deep passion for material culture, remarkable raw materials, special techniques, unique ideas, artisan-designer collaborations, contemporary craft, sustainable thinking & social design projects. Many projects have narratives and stories to tell, with works on the intersection of design, art and architecture. Following its mission the gallery serves as a platform of exchange between the continents and has been on the forefront of discovering talent from Mexico and nourishing cross-cultural exchange and knowledge transfer ever since its inception 7 years ago.
We cater for interested individuals, collectors, interior designers and architects seeking extraordinary pieces to create an eclectic and out of the ordinary experience. We provide luxury design that stems from a humble design approach.
In her curatorial and research roles Friedmann has been working on a wide range of projects with clients like the Victoria and Albert Museum (2008-2017), the British Council, private galleries, and has lectured about Design, Curation and Latin American Design at Kingston University & the Design Museum, Chelsea College of Art and Design, Sotheby's Institute of Art, ADM institute Mexico City, Centro University, Mexico City and Anáhuac University, Mexico.
