Baker Textile Gallery, New York

'A Space within a Space': To set the scene for Bakers contemporary textile collection the designated space within the showroom was clad with classical moulded panels of warm, neutral greys. And to create a sense of permanence historical oil paintings are referenced and placed strategically about the gallery supporting the display– old masters next to the contemporary.

Central to the plan is the wide entrance corridor that utilizes the row of existing windows, placing between them raised display plinths – echoing a series of classical statues. And makes use of alcoves to position a series of fabric displays and enclosed seating areas.
