House of Voltaire returned to the heart of Mayfair at 31 Cork Street from 25 September to 21 December 2019.
On sale were over 150 new and exclusive unique artworks, limited edition prints, homewares, clothing, furniture and objects by world–renowned artists and designers. Everything in the store was one of a kind or limited edition, and exclusive to House of Voltaire. All proceeds directly supported arts and education charity Studio Voltaire’s exhibition and learning programmes.
A rotating cast of familiar faces from the worlds of art, design, fashion, music and food joined us to guest shopkeep and curate a series of special talks and events throughout the store’s run.
With prices ranging from £5 to £60,000, House of Voltaire enables established collectors as well as art and design enthusiasts to take home something they love, and discover something new.
2019 marked an important moment for Studio Voltaire as we continued to fundraise for The Studio Voltaire Capital Project. This transformative £2.4 million scheme will provide 42% more affordable artists’ studios, increase public spaces by 233%, establish a new dedicated Learning and Events Space, build two Artists’ Apartments and create a new public courtyard garden and cafe. Excitingly, they will also introduce the first–ever permanent House of Voltaire in Clapham.
House of Voltaire at 31 Cork Street Mayfair was made possible with the generous support of Cork Street Galleries.
