Collective design is good to look at in a beautiful interior and relaxed atmosphere. It is this format of meetings with new luxury that the Nomad fair offers. Invented by two gallery owners Nicolas Bellavans-Lecomte and Giorgio Pace, the spring session takes place at the Villa Carl Lagerfeld La Vigie in Monte Carlo from 26 to 29 April.
The format of the chamber exhibition for friends of collectors and lovers of collectible design was very successful. Nomad liked, guests and buyers go specifically to the fair, and the gallery owners began to prepare rare and valuable things for the show on this site. This time 15 galleries take part in the event, including Milan’s Nulifar, London’s David Gill, New York’s Fiedman Benda, Roman Galleria O. Roma, Beirut’s Sarwan Gallery.

Of course, the main thing in the offer of the Nomad fair is the modern author’s things, small-circulation, original in form and interesting in the way of production. There are works of the rising star of Dutch Sabin Marceliz, there is a recent classic – like the opuses of Zaha Hadid and Ettore Sottsassa. There is a very impressive, unusual proposal – two items designed in the mid-1980s by Ray Kawakubo. They are represented by the Paris gallery A 1043.

For connoisseurs of rarities associated with the history of design, there is also something interesting, for example, two sets of Italian Antonio Buziri Vichi, made in the early 1930s – a real Italian art deco with beautiful geometry.

Milan gallery owner Nina Yashar promised an exclusive display of the new Stick Wallpaper Table, made by the Parisian architect Claude Mysir. But the most important premiere of the Nomad fair will be furniture items, specially designed by the designer Mathieu Leanner. This special dedication to the Villa LaVigie, Leanner’s project was carried out with the assistance of the auction house Christie’s.
