Philolux background

About Philolux

Philolux, based in Chicago, is a private client gallery founded in 2013 by French-American couple Carly & Joachim Lapotre. At the gallery's core is the point of view of the contemporary artist trained in classic arts where design, contemporary art, and photography merge fluently. The collection blends decades of creations. In 2016, Philolux started producing the Lapotres' designs, and the designs of other artists and emerging designers, launching a new phase in the gallery’s development that continues the conversation between past and present, art and functionalism.
