Maison Rapin is one of the best exhibitors to look forward to in PAD Monaco 2019, which will open its doors at April 26. Philippe Rapin, a talented designer, created his “Maison” where he collects and showcases the most wonderful collectible designs. Maison Rapin owns two galleries in Paris, Quai Voltaire and Rue de Beaune and Kam Tin Furniture. The outstanding art gallery is a sneak peek into the world and aesthetic of this eclectic art dealer.
Philippe Rapin created his first gallery in 1978, dedicated to ceramics. In the 80s, he moved to the Louvre des Antiquaires then rue du Bac in Paris, before settling in Quai Voltaire for many years.
In the early 2000s, he created his gallery in Brussels, 146 Avenue Louise, based on the appealing of Italian design. Afterwards, he went to London in 2008 where he opened a gallery in Pimlico Road while creating Kam Tin, the mark of the “meubles bijoux”. In 2012, he re-opened a gallery in Paris on the Quai Voltaire. Then, in 2013, he established its activity in Asia by opening a gallery in Hong Kong and the jewel-furniture brand Kam Tin. In 2018, he opened a second gallery in Paris on the Rue de Beaune.
Nowadays, he uses all his efforts into his two Parisian galleries and Kam Tin Furniture under one single label: Maison Rapin.
