About us

Welcome to Formalist Gallery

Our gallery was established in January 2015 in Prague. We arrived in the Czech Republic from Israel with a strong passion for great design and style, and so we founded Formalist Gallery. Today, we specialize and offer collectible 20th-century Bauhaus and Nordic design classics. Our gallery’s collection includes important pieces by Jindřich Halabala, Paavo Tynell, Alvar Aalto, Hans Bergström, Madsen & Schubell, Otto Schulz, Marcel Breuer and Kamenický Šenov as well as other unique pieces by talented 20th-century cabinetmakers.

All the pieces presented in our gallery are hand-selected and are distinguished by great attention to detail, elegant lining and shaping, and often have an almost sculptural quality. Here at Formalist Gallery, we find quality and authenticity highly important hence every item that comes into our warehouse undergoes a thorough inspection of its structure and condition, which then helps us to decide on what exactly the piece needs in terms of restoration. We always aim to stay true to the original intention of the designer and at the same time fulfill the wishes of our clients. Some of the pieces we offer are being carefully restored while other are kept in their original condition to fully preserve their true beauty and elegance as it was when first produced.

Besides original 20th-century design items, Formalist Gallery also offers a selection of authentic timeless fashion ranging from bags and small leather goods to jewelry and other accessories by renowned designers.

Collectibles of this kind are not only elegant and quality items but are considered an investment in beauty. To invest in this industry, however, you need not only funds but also knowledge, a sense of the market, and, of course, the support of highly skilled consultants. Knowing much about such exquisite and timeless pieces, it can be foreseen that some will increase dramatically in value in the nearest future, while others will grow slowly but steadily.

We guarantee the authenticity and quality of all our goods.
