THE INVISIBLE COLLECTION LAUNCHES FIRST SHOPPABLE EXHIBITION AT PHILLIPS SOUTHAMPTON
The Invisible Collection is excited to announce their first brick-and-mortar pop-up at Phillips Southampton, opening from August 7 to September 6, 2021. Co-founders, Anna Zaoui and Isabelle Dubern-Mallevays, created this state-of-the art digital platform to champion handcrafted couture furniture and accessories from the world’s best designers. This summer, they will bring this shoppable concept to American shores for design savants and collectors alike.
With an exceptional eye for aesthetics and superior craftsmanship, the duo sources and offers a unique inventory of contemporary products from a talent pool of veteran and emerging designers, many of which are on Architectural Digest’s 100 (AD100) list. The Phillips arena will be outfitted with a mélange of coveted furnishings available for purchase from the likes of CSLB Studio, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Juliana Lima, Pinto, Kelly Behun, Emmanuelle Simon, LouiseLiljencrantz, Pierre Yovanovitch, Osanna Visconti, Michel & DanielBismut, Charles Zana and Studio Parisien.
Bespoke designs on show include the Piatro Mosaic Side Table by Kelly Behun, Asymmetry Armchair by Pierre Yovanovitch, Odalisque Sofa by CSLB Studio and Arcane Desk and Cottage Chair by Pinto.
Originally built in 1925, the 6,000-square-feet Phillips auction house is designed by architects Markus Dochantschi’s studio MDA and occupies a historic location at the corner of Main Street and Hampton Road in Long Island’s East End.
“After a lengthy travel ban, it feels extra special to transform the historic Phillips space into a welcoming home in the U.S. for design aficionados with some of our best pieces. We’re excited to create conversations between collectors and connoisseurs amongst these precious shoppable items. It’s truly a full circle moment as Phillips was one of the first auction houses to recognize the value of collectable contemporary design and promoting the great European tradition of arts décoratifs is still relevant today.”
The Invisible Collection is proud to offer eco-friendly collectible, couture-design pieces by partnering with those who use noble, responsibly sourced materials. Since July 2020, the brand has offset their carbon footprint of transportation by donating to the Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN), which supports governments and communities in conserving endangered regions.
Celebrating the icons of tomorrow and the vanguards that paved the way, The Invisible Collection champions sustainable luxury by promoting local production and heritage, with a made-to-order model. Since 2021, The Invisible Collection has pledged to compensate the carbon emissions of its transport and delivery. Following its launch, The Invisible Collection has since expanded its digital presence with showrooms in London, Paris and New York.
