House of Voltaire draws inspiration from the concept of fashion ateliers as well as artist’s shops, most notably Keith Haring’s Pop Shop and the Bloomsbury Group’s Omega Workshops.
The shop will sell works by both established and emerging artists, many of whom have been previously supported by Studio Voltaire. A wide range of works will be available including limited edition prints, unique works and a series of specially commissioned home wares, clothing and accessories.
Product highlights include bandanas by artist Linder and fashion designer Richard Nicoll; a silk scarf by Mark Titchner; a woolen blanket by Paulina Olowska; a portfolio of hand tinted etchings by Pablo Bronstein, a new photographic edition by Ryan McGinley, a leather House of Voltaire bag designed by Stefania Pramma, and a unique work by Francesco Vezzoli. Other participating artists and designers include Jeremy Deller, Martino Gamper, Anthea Hamilton, Mark Leckey, Peter Pilotto & Frances Upritchard, Elizabeth Price, Elizabeth Peyton, Sarah Lucas and Rosemarie Trockel.
