David Gill broke new ground in championing the work of designers who have become world famous, from Marc Newson to Tom Dixon and Ron Arad. His gallery in St James’s demonstrates the significant role he has played in changing the status and perception of contemporary design internationally.
Born in Spain and educated in France and England, Gill grew up with a rich exposure to culture, arts and science. He is now renowned as a collector with an instinctive understanding of what is best and what will appreciate in value. ‘I simply know what is good,’ he says. Studying History of Art in London, Gill was offered a position at Christie’s before the course was even finished. He specialised in Modern Prints but was drawn to 20th Century art and design – a category which didn’t really exist at the time.
After leaving Christie’s, he chose to travel for two and a half years. ‘After that experience I decided that I didn’t want to work in a museum or gallery or auction house but to move into the commercial world and to open my own gallery.’ said David.
Nowadays David Gill has one of the most renowned contemporary design galleries in London. You can visit at 2-4 King Street London SW1Y 6QP.
