Welcome to the Space Encounters Gallery

The Space Encounters Gallery is an organic offshoot from interior design firm and mid-century modern furniture brand Space Encounters.

Space Encounters Gallery aims to promote a community that embraces reciprocity of ideas and art appreciation in a welcoming environment. Expect more exhibits and events that put the ingenuity of Filipino artistry at the forefront.

The concept for this new, must-visit space was inspired by the local brand’s latest collection, “The New Romantics,” which brings to the spotlight classical pieces mixed with mid-century modern and industrial elements.

The Gallery is set in a 124-square meter area that was originally intended as an extension of the Space Encounters furniture showroom. It features vignettes of mid-century modern furniture, vintage items, and art in its various forms—a study on how accessible, versatile, and fun art should be.

Each ensemble is carefully curated to showcase how each decorative element—when taken as a whole—can create a space that’s inviting and functional; even the hallway leading to the Gallery offers snippets of art and furniture that co-exist to create an intimate and inviting ambiance.

Space Encounters Gallery turns into a speakeasy as it opens a back-to-back trio show fronted by young artists. Bayani Galera, Jessie Mondares, and Arno Salvador stages Look At You Now, a narrative about one’s current state of mind. The show, which is a coalescence of representational, pop surrealist, and street art, is also a tongue-in-cheek illustration of how far one has gone in his journey, regardless of the destination. The Warhol Show, on the other hand, is a celebration of the man behind the pop art movement: Andy Warhol. Blic, Farley Del Rosario, and Mr. S bring to life Warhol’s works in a refreshing light.

 

Also on display are the upcycled furniture pieces of artist Paco Pili. Space Encounters lead designer Wilimer Lopez collaborated with Pili to come up with functional pieces made of old airplane parts, which Lopez found and immediately saw the creative potential of.  An acrylic window gets incorporated in an armoire, while a turbine engine cover is transformed into an ottoman. A propeller and a spinner cap becomes an accent lighting fixture, and an emergency exit door is reincarnated as a pedestal. All these (and more) make up the “Fear of Flying” collection of Space Encounters x Pili.
