HAVING ESTABLISHED ITSELF as New York’s leading purveyor of historical and contemporary Scandinavian design, Hostler Burrows has been a mainstay of the city’s ever-evolving gallery scene since 1998. Extolling the virtues of craftsmanship, experimentation and material integrity, the gallery – founded and run by Kim Hostler and Juliet Burrows – has fostered a strong roster of international designers. Many of the represented talents are women who don’t garner as much exposure as they deserve outside their home countries.
With its latest venture, HB381, an outpost located in New York’s burgeoning Tribeca neighbourhood, the gallerists hope to establish a platform for emerging creatives eager to transcend disciplinary boundaries. On the heels of the opening of its inaugural solo show celebrating the irreverent yet expressive sculptures of up-and-coming Danish ceramicist Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen, Juliet Burrows spoke to The Design Edit about her vision behind the new outpost.
