CLASSIC car dealership Hexagon has opened an art gallery at its flagship showroom on the Great North Road in East Finchley, London.
It is run by experienced interior designer Racheline Michaels, the wife of the company’s founder, Paul Michaels.
The space features globally-sourced pieces ranging from ceramics and fine art to sculptures, photography and classic and contemporary furniture.
Working with collectors, designers and architects, one of the aims of the gallery will be to incorporate pieces and groups at the design stage so they can be shown in a considered way to maximum effect.
Featuring pop-up installations from some of the world’s most talented artists, the gallery will also feature a collection of gifts from Stelton and Georg Jense.
Racheline Michaels said: ‘I’m really proud to be able to show the work of the world’s finest artists in such a unique environment. The gallery is a wonderful oasis showcasing the form and function of art works, furniture and products.’
Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon, said: ‘The opening of the gallery is the latest step in really making our flagship showroom a unique destination and a true lifestyle experience.
‘Later this year we will open our restaurant, making the showroom the place in London to enjoy the finest cars, design and food.
‘With space for 50 of the world’s finest classic cars and a coffee bar, wine bar and restaurant headed by a Michelin-starred chef opening later this year, it will mix cars and luxury lifestyle like no other location in the capital.’
Hexagon Modern Classics and Hexagon Lotus share the same premises on the Great North Road, while sister dealership Hexagon Classics is in Reece Mews, South Kensington.
