Moving on Down
Edited by Annie Block -- Interior Design, 8/1/2007 12:00:00 AM
After 40 years on New York's Upper East Side, Barry Friedman is relocating his namesake gallery to Chelsea—and opening with shows of glass by Toots Zynsky and figurative paintings by Anne-Karin Furunes, a Norwegian making her U.S. debut. The ground floor of the three-story, 18,000-square-foot building by Murdock Young Architects also houses the Friedman Benda gallery, a new joint effort with former Barry Friedman director Marc Benda. The inaugural exhibition there features never-before-seen furniture and glass by Ettore Sottsass, who's 90th birthday is the same month the gallery opens.
