Katherine Maginnis is recognised for its meticulous approach to sourcing and curating artwork for both private and commercial clients, providing comprehensive project management, from concept to installation.
We believe that global contemporary art is an integral part of interior design that enhances the character of any building or space. We recognise that every project is unique and advise that art be considered at concept stage, where possible, allowing the space to determine the criteria.
At Katherine Maginnis, sourcing and curating artwork is not about adding a finishing touch, art plays a fundamental role in carefully balancing all other design elements, which together create harmonious and cohesive environments
It is this vision that has led to creative collaborations with brands, such as Italian furniture suppliers Minotti London, where Katherine personally curates artwork for the London showroom and works with the design team consulting on interiors projects.
With over 20 years experience in the visual arts industries, the team at Katherine Maginnis have built relationships with artists and artisans across all media, based on their understanding of each artist’s individual practice. Inviting artists’ to be part of the design process provides them with an opportunity to create something authentic to each environment.
Katherine selects artists from diverse backgrounds who experiment with new artistic processes and materials, allowing them to create original bespoke artworks to commission and providing an opportunity to collaborate with brands converging art, fashion, design, interiors and lifestyle.
With a background in advertising stills and film production for brands such as Levis and Bacardi, it is unsurprising that Katherine has combined her skills and knowledge in both art and production to collaborate with brands on experiential events and launches. The art world is a fast moving and experimental platform perfectly aligned to create one-off experiences for client and consumer alike.
