Kim Hostler and Juliet Burrows founded their New York gallery Antik in 1998 and have consistently led the evolving market of Nordic design, championing and promoting the work of Scandinavia’s most prominent designers of the twentieth century. The gallery focuses on exceptional and unique examples of studio ceramics, cabinetmaker furniture and hand woven textiles by the master artisans and architects of the period.
After fourteen years in its TribeCa home, the gallery, which now bears the owners’ names - Hostler Burrows - will move in early fall of 2012 to 51 East 10th Street, in the heart of one of New York City’s richest destinations for design and decorative arts.
For Design Miami/ Basel 2012, the gallery features ceramic works by Axel Salto, Hans Hedberg and Birger Kaipianen, a unique Sequoia burl table by Danish designer Børge Mogensen and a specially commissioned bar cabinet by the Swedish architect Axel Einar Hjorth.
In keeping with the aesthetics inherent in these pieces, the gallery presents contemporary work by American designer Charles de Lisle, whose bold designs in reclaimed woods are informed by the same ideals of artistry and craftsmanship as the Scandinavian designers of the past.
