VIDEO: Tour Leroy Street Studio’s Landing at the Galerie House of Art and Design
Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent, this transportive lounge area features architectural flourishes and works of art by Walton Ford, Jens Fange, and Gabriel Rico
“We were inspired by the Yves Saint Laurent’s Buddha room in Paris,” says Leroy Street Studio’s Sybille Schneider of the lower-level landing at the Galerie House of Art and Design. The New York–based firm sheathed the space in a bold ochre hue from the Paint Laboratory as well as wallpaper by Fromental. Architectural arches around doorways and display niches were also created, the latter filled with unique treasures from Pace African & Oceanic Art, Donzella, and Art for Change, which donates a portion of the sales of its global collection to organizations affecting positive change around the globe. The artworks are by Walton Ford (Kasmin), Jens Fange, and Gabriel Rico (both Perrotin), while the lighting is from Maison Gerard and R & Company, seating by Lalanne, and a substantial fireplace from Twenty First Gallery.
Watch below as Schneider shares her inspiration and how she imagines space being used.
