Contemporary design gallery The Future Perfect opens its latest project in Beverly Hills to coincide with Frieze Los Angeles. The fourth installment of the gallery's Casa Perfect concept, this edition is housed in a Trousdale Estates home designed by Raul F. Garduno in 1971.
Casa Perfect LA features new work from The Future Perfect roster, including artists Floris Wubben, Chris Wolston, John Hogan, Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Bari Ziperstein, Eric Roinestad, Cody Hoyt, Ben & Aja Blanc, Seungjin Yang, Christopher Stuart and Reinaldo Sanguino, in addition to pieces from gallery mainstays De La Espada, Calico Wallpaper, Lindsey Adelman, and David Weeks.
A highlight of this installment is an exhibition of new works from the Wonky collection by artist Matthew Day Jackson. The Wonky collection is made using only basic tools without precise measurement, resulting in sometimes uncertain outcomes for each piece, ultimately imbuing the collection with a sense of chaos. For instance, bubbles appear in the fiberglass, neither surface nor paint is perfect and symmetry is never achieved.
The private, by appointment-only gallery is the Future Perfect's answer to the increasing irrelevance of traditional retail. The concept of residence and gallery in one creates a space to view culturally important works in a novel way, while the end result is a private home that feels like a perfect time capsule of contemporary design.
