Art-gallery giant Gagosian opens a 600-square-foot gift shop on the ground floor of its Upper East Side location. The space was designed by Selldorf Architects (selldorf.com), a local firm with a history of developing art-display spaces. Posters ($15–$750), prints ($1,000–$100,000) and publications ($10–$4,500) are the main focus, but artist-designed home decor ($20–$15,000) and useful objects ($699–$10,000) pepper the offerings. Store-exclusive Urs Fischer ink-jet wallpaper prints on nylon-reinforced paper ($1,500–$15,000) and Plexiglas-framed Andy Warhol prints ($350) instantly add art-world cred to residential walls.
