The curation of products is highly considered, meaning each piece has a place individually and is in gentle dialogue with others. “A key detail is that the gallery deliberately allows plenty of void space around the products to enable them to breathe,” Daniel says. This also allows clients to understand the story behind the designs and the custom options available.
The Prism collection launch coincided with the opening of the gallery space. A series of organic, crystalline table configurations made from sustainably sourced timber, the Prism collection reflects Daniel Boddam Studio’s preoccupation with ‘sacred geometry’. As the first collection to be unveiled within the context of a physical gallery, Daniel says they’ve enjoyed hearing client feedback and seeing how clients respond to the collection, touching and feeling them in person. “I want people to feel, touch, sit and experience my pieces in real life, and the gallery provides this platform,” Daniel maintains.
The gallery space also invites the design-discerning to experience each piece as part of a setting, such as a living or dining-inspired collective. “I wanted the space to feel more like a gallery or residence and less like a showroom,” Daniel says. “The gallery is a moment of stillness, a time to pause, and a refuge from the dynamic urban streetscape outside.”
Daniel Boddam Gallery is located at 46 Smith St, Collingwood, VIC 3066, and can be visited by appointment only.
