Founded by David Alhadeff in 2003, The Future Perfect has since become one of the world’s most established contemporary design galleries which evokes a thoroughly creative vision with a strong curatorial focus to present one of a kind and bespoke pieces under one roof. Their fourth installment of the Casa Perfect concept has been unveiled in a 1971 Beverly Hills mansion designed by non other than local architect Raul F. Garduno. Possessing ‘a seductive low-rise silhouette with long curving hallways and floor to ceiling windows that afford panoramic views of the L.A basin,’ the Trousdale Estates home will house a collection of new works from the Wonky collection by artist Matthew Day Jackson.
Exuding a sense of intentional chaos, the approach used by the Wonky collection relies solely on basic tools and without using any precise measurements, resulting in a playful approach and one which can result in uncertain outcomes for the individual pieces. For this reason, the Wonky collection triumphs in how its form expresses certain components such as humor, the hand and the vulnerability of the author.
As Founder of the Future Project, David Alhadeff, asserts, ‘our new home for Casa Perfect LA is my favourite house yet. The Casa Perfect concept for me has always been about utilising incredible architecture – in this case a jewel that has been virtually untouched since 1971 – as a backdrop for our contemporary programme. I’m particularly proud of the work Matthew will debut with us; his playful designs – impressively engineered and beautifully handworked – will help set the stage for a bright year in our new home, appropriately beginning during Frieze LA.’
A gallery located within a striking and noteworthy residential space, the rather unique environment, which blends residence and gallery into once, offers a space where one can understand and view culturally important works in a novel way. By placing bespoke, custom and one-of-a-kind contemporary design works together in one setting, Casa Perfect aims to bring excitement to the idea of how architectural settings overlap with cultural and historical significance. A true catalyst in the design world, The Future Perfect continues to forge relationships with some of the world’s most important and influential designers, artists and craftspeople across the world.
