We already showed you how this year’s edition of Milan Design Week is unmissable, and Nilufar Gallery and Nilufar Depot just added more reasons to the list! After an extended break, Milan Design Week is back in full force, as well as Supersalone, the famous Salone del Mobile. Exhibiting across three locations for Design Week, Nina Yashar has gathered an impressive group of creatives, with an exquisite selection of projects and unique collectible design pieces, showcased at Nilufar Gallery!
The three locations hold the famed Nilufar Gallery, at Via Della Spiga 32, the amazing Nilufar Depot at Viale Lancetti 34, and small, but still impressive, Alcova, at Via Simone Saint Bon 1. Nina Yashar‘s careful research and a sharp eye for contemporary design and art provided a curated selection of unique projects and outstanding pieces for famous artists and designers!
I’m very fond of this year’s edition of Milan Design Week: it marks a new beginning and is an occasion to meet after a long time and discuss the latest trends and discoveries in the industry, as well as new ways of collaboration. The past few months have given us the opportunity to reflect on our work, delve into our projects, and conduct research together with designers.Nina Yashar
Dubbed Matacubi by Pietro Consagra, this is one of the major contemporary art exhibitions, taking place at the main atrium of the Nilufar Depot. The show, curated by Nina together with Luca Massimo Barbero, was established in collaboration with the Pietro Consagra Archives and installed by Ruggero Moncada di Patern. It showcases a selection of unpublished works by the artist, who is internationally recognized as the most prominent figure in the new Italian contemporary sculpture scene.
The Palcoscenico area at Nilufar Depot is dedicated to Odyssey, Andrés Reisinger’s first solo show in Italy, where the designer speaks of the connection between the digital and the real world through a dialogue between furniture and NFTs.
The Caveau space hosts the solo exhibition Jungle by Khaled El Mays featuring a site-specific intervention by Federica Perazzoli. The collection of unique lamps, Sun-Ra by Nanda Vigo, graces one of the 30 stages set up at Depot. Made in collaboration with JCP Universe, this is the last project by the celebrated designer who recently passed away.
Over at Nilufar Gallery, the Ornate exhibition celebrates the first 10 years of the collaboration between Nina Yashar and Bethan Laura Wood. Alongside a number of iconic pieces the designer has created exclusively for Nilufar over the past decade, a new collection of mirrors, lights, and cabinets speaks of the designer’s different cultural influences.
The show Some Vibrant Things by Audrey Large, curated by Studio Vedét, is on display at the Nilufar 25 mq project room. The artist keeps questioning the dichotomy between the digital and real.
Also, on the first floor of Nilufar Gallery takes place the new series Arcoiris by Analogia Project and two projects by Filippo Carandini, as his first collaboration with Nilufar.
A part of the FAR program curated by Studio Vedèt, the collective show Brassless is exhibited at Alcove. It was originally presented at Nilufar Depot in 2020, and now features a selection of unique pieces by international designers including Objects of Common Interest, Simon Ballen, Odd Matter, Older and Carlo Lorenzetti among others.
