This weekend City Modern
kicked off with the Manhattan and Brooklyn Home Tours. The tours take design fans inside the doors of some of the city’s most standout residences. This year, one of the highlights was an impressive 10,000 square-foot studio and residence in Brooklyn. The Salle Residence
belongs to painter David Salle and is the largest collaboration to date between the artist and designer Christian Hubert. Having worked together on Salle’s former residence and studio, the two resumed their partnership when the artist found he’d outgrown his current living space. Hubert’s strong understanding of the dynamic between art and space led to a long-lasting creative partnership with David Salle that began in 1984 with their first collaboration on the artist’s loft. For Hubert, this foray into the design of a space immersed in art was the beginning of what would become a portfolio
populated with a number of art-centric projects ranging from exhibition design at the Whitney Museum to galleries as widespread as Greece and Los Angeles. We were able to catch up with the two during City Modern and learn more about their partnership and the integration of art and architecture in the design process.
