If you wanted to see some of the rarest most avant-garde pices of art, lighting, sculpture and furniture you have arrived at Nilufar. Just to look through their website gives you a wider perspective of artfully designed objects. “Nebulosa” vase by Ettore Sottsass (pic7) is an amazing piece that I had seen before but did no know the artist, I also know that I won’t be picking up one of those any time soon, only 99 were made.
Starting from the end of the Nineties, the Gallery knew how to cut out its own space and become the reference point to lovers of historical design as well as to people following the evolution of contemporary design, above all within that more learned, poetic and visionary area shifting between production and contemporary art. Nina Yashar, the gallery founder, works with her sister Nilu and a team of five people. Nilufar took part in several editions of Pavillon des Arts et du Design in Paris and is always present at Design Miami/Basel. Nilufar has its own small manifesto, composed of three words: Discovering, Crossing, Creating.
