Béton Brut is currently ‘in residence’ at the Paul Smith London flagship shop in Mayfair.
With an official launch for London Design Festival 2022, the Lower Ground floor of No. 9 Albemarle Street becomes Béton Brut’s new central London showroom, showcasing its collection of vintage furniture and artworks.

‘Paper’ is the inaugural furniture collection of London-based designer David Horan, exclusive to Béton Brut gallery. Informed by decoupage and the Japanese Mingei movement, Horan layers handmade paper over a series of original architectonic forms – seating, a screen, coffee table – in a new applied ‘vegan vellum’.

Low Collection is a new series looking to question the various ways of sitting in cultures worldwide. These minimalist ‘sculptures’ echo sensual forms and suggest places to rest and interact.
Playing with scale and stature, London architect, Benni Allan arrives at new ‘floor culture’ or ‘Zazen’ for modern living.
23 May – 08 July 2022 @ 50 Vyner Street, London E2 9DQ
Here, we sit on liminal ground between art and function. Between the organic and rational. Curvilinear forms are extruded with precision. Or cleanly crosscut to reveal the quality of the end-grain.
Made from solid oak grown in the UK, Low also combines modern manufacture and traditional craftsmanship, each piece hand-finished by Allan.
Benni Allan is an architect, designer and maker. His practice EBBA intersects architecture and the visual arts, creating objects and spaces that explore materiality, construction, proportions and form.
Long-time creative collaborators Sophie Pearce (Béton Brut) and Laura Fulmine (M.A.H.) unite to open a shared two-storey gallery space, ’50 Vyner’. Launching at LDF2021, expect a minimal playground of curated furniture, lighting and art – a playful union of material and form, vintage and contemporary.
18-26 September 2021 @ 50 Vyner Street, London E2 9DQ

Gavin Turk is one of Britain’s most renowned artists. In ‘Transit’ he presents a new series of etchings derived from the exhaust emissions of his white van.
Shown alongside ‘White Transit Van Compression’ – we see an icon of British culture reduced to a single abstract form: a crushed cuboid, a dark stain.
Proceeds from the exhibition will be shared with Creative Wick – helping the creative community thrive during rapid redevelopment and an uncertain future. We will also give a spotlight to local Hackney Wick artist Thomas Moore, who will present a series of etchings called ‘Exodus’.
