PHOS ART + DESIGN

PHOS ART+DESIGN is a prestigious gallery located in the heart of Mayfair, London. Cinimod Studio’s involvement within the project included the transformation of the previous gallery space into one of the most advanced and flexible gallery environments. It has been designed with a forward-looking approach in which technological and structural flexibility is integrated within the very design and physical fabric of the architecture.


Meticulous attention to each function, architectural, and design detail has challenged the traditional art gallery format. The Cinimod designed gallery will allow for the curation and exhibition of an expanded range of artwork. The exhibition walls are made of a seamless white Corian surface, unique in contemporary gallery design, and wrap around the interior volume, enveloping the space with an immaculate finish.

A unique fixing system, developed by Cinimod Studio and Blades Joinery, provides a concealed fixing method to allow maximum flexibility to hang, suspend or fix a variety of artworks in different mediums: from ceramic sculpture, glass chandeliers to interactive digital screens. Power and data are supplied to each of these points, with service access behind the wall allowing the space to evolve to the needs of the artworks.

Cinimod have incorporated state of the art LED lighting technology and control systems, which coupled with the multi-channel sound system, provides for a fully adaptable and configurable space. The gallery is equally physically adaptable and reconfigurable through the integrated modular fixing system running within the floors, walls and ceiling.

Through their architectural and lighting design, Cinimod Studio have provided PHOS ART+DESIGN with a space that unequivocally demonstrates the gallery’s commitment to a truly multidisciplinary project space that can handle the demands of the most conceptually innovative and physically remarkable artworks and design objects of the future.
