This past weekend in the picturesque and snowy Samedan, Switzerland, the traveling design showcase NOMAD St. Moritz held its winter edition. Exhibiting modern design and contemporary art, this innovative show inspires artists and designers to create and contribute pieces that work with whichever beautiful venue is picked.
Tired of the typical, bland exhibition halls, founders Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte seek locations where the exhibitions and works can respond to the context of the unique venues.

This second edition of the exhibition (held from February 8th-11th) took place at Chesa Planta – a prestigious 16th-century mansion. Over 20 galleries showcased their pieces in the beautiful, baroque interiors.

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite designs displayed…

David Gill Gallery selected a blue and green drawing room to exhibit, where they chose pieces to accentuate the color. In the center is a table by Mattia Bonetti that is hand painted with a marble pattern of vivid greens and blues, commissioned by the gallery’s CEO Francis Sultana for this specific room. Also featured is a sought-after candelabra by Andre Dubreuil.

This impeccably designed armchair by Joaquim Teneiro was designed in the 1950s and is just one of many inspiring designs showcased by Nilufar Gallery at NOMAD St. Moritz. The delightfully fuzzy upholstery juxtaposes beautifully with the sleek and slim iron frame.
