Who We Are


Founded by Joesph Gimlik and Lucy Payne, Material Gallery & Bookshop began life in 2007. Created to represent the work of designers and artists from a myriad of visual disciplines, Material promotes limited edition prints and beautifully conceived products. Due to the nature of print, much of the work is affordable and, in turn, accessible to a wider demographic, stripping away any false pretences that may have once been associated with the gallery concept. With a desire to share ideas and provide a source of discussion and inspiration by way of carefully selected complimentary publications, we also pride ourselves on being one of a growing number of establishments who, in light of the burgeoning digital age, champion the importance of the book as much as the the much coveted advancements of this digital age.
