Isokon Gallery (Please check here prior to visiting)
Is planning to reopen on Saturday, 6th March 2021.
The 2020 Exhibition:  Jacques Groag, architect and furniture designer, and Jacqueline Groag, textile and pattern designer, were two celebrated residents of the Isokon in the 1940s and early 1950s, yet due to split residence between three countries, which often did not communicate with each other in the 20th century, the tremendous scope of work of these second-wave Viennese Modernists has only recently become known.
