In two gallery spaces in Paris, Maison Rapin offers a rare collection of 20th and 21st century decorative art and design, combining rare pieces by Italian and Belgian artists with exclusive contemporary creations. The gallery’s atypical selection includes work by major 20th century artists such as Robert Goossens, Coco Chanel’s trusted craftsman; Yves Saint-Laurent (specifically his creations made of bronze and rock crystal); and Gio Ponti, the icon of 20th century Italian architecture and design. The gallery also has an important collection of kinetic works by the British artist Marc Cavell (1911-1989). Maison Rapin promotes the sophisticated contemporary creations of European artists such as Roberto Guilio Rida and Marc Bankowsky and is the exclusive representative of KAM TIN, the maker of ‘jewellery furniture’ composed of materials such as turquoise, amber and pyrite. Maison Rapin is an exciting, eclectic gallery in which styles and periods converge.
