Formation Association Designs Phillips' New West Coast Headquarters

Formation Association has designed the West Coast headquarters for Phillips, the London-based contemporary auction house. The space is remodeled from a series of existing buildings, featuring three showrooms, a patio, and an office, transforming what were once eclectic neighborhood structures into light-filled galleries on an iconic stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, a historical nexus of art and design. Open to the public from October 25-27, 2022, the inaugural exhibition will feature works from the upcoming auctions of 20th Century and Contemporary Art, Watches, and Design, including Jean-Michel Basquiat’s To Repel Ghosts.
