Willer Gallery

Willer has emerged as an essential source for designers and private clients alike. Combining textiles, objet, furniture and lighting from a selection of the worlds finest artisans.

Rebecca Willer established her eponymous Holland Park gallery with the goal of sourcing only those products that met her exceptionally high standards. Describing herself as as the ‘sourcer’s sourcer,’ Willer has built her collection via a select group of international artists and craftsmen; presenting a range that encompasses exclusive collaborations, antique finds and her own range of products.

Known to be an ‘obsessive researcher’ Willer has built a reputation on an international scale. This has allowed her to include pieces that are out of reach for most distributors and many of these high profile works presented through exhibitions at the gallery. In 2012 the Willer exhibited the complete series of Lynne Chadwicks bronze candelabras. Shown together for the first time, these sculptures detailed an original direction for Chadwick’s work due to the piece’s domestic nature.

The most recent exhibition included the work of award winning architect and designer Philip Michael Wolfson between October and November 2014. His XY series was a natural extension of his noted modernist preference and included two exclusive pieces for the Willer Gallery. Deriving from the language of the original series: ‘Origami’ and the ‘Twisted X,’ Wolfson further abstracted the original elements of the circle and the square.

Her collaborations range currently include pieces by esteemed designers such as Christiane Perrochon , and silversmiths Piurforcat. These works explore a breadth of disciplines that ranging from centre pieces with Hugh Bonnefille to a limited edition Pivot candelabra alongside Tom Dixon.

With each item carefully curated by Rebecca, the Willer Gallery is a rare form of boutique: one that offers new and antique products that hold the same value as many exhibited in the city’s museums.
