Featuring more than 20 galleries and six special projects, the second edition of Nomad St. Moritz offers a selection of collectible design within the striking frame of Chesa Planta, a 16th century house in Samedan, Switzerland. The event, conceived by luxury brand consultant Giorgio Pace and gallerist Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, offers an intimate space to enhance a dialogue between galleries, designers and visitors in uncommon architectural spaces.
New launches include the collaboration between American artist Rob Pruitt with YOOX and the marble stones of Angela Weber Möbel that reinterpret the stone floors by Portaluppi at Villa Necchi in Milan. Belgian gallery Maniera announces new pieces in silk by Christoph Hefti and Swiss designer Mattia Bonetti brings a sofa, represented by David Gill Gallery and fashion designer Susan Cianciolo brings to Europe a series of tapestries.
A set of sculptural works by Japanese artist Setsuko Klossowska – who moved to Switzerland in 1975 with late husband Balthus – fills the rooms of the Engadin house, presented by with French gallerist Almine Rech. Matali Crasset continues her collaboration with The Cultural Gallery with project WOOD, reinterpreting stools, chairs and tableware with this warm material.
Innovation in materials is revealed by works of Studio Ilio, Bahraini-Danish, Studio Formafantasma and Michela Cattai. Studio Ilio takes to the Alps its chandelier Sticks on Circle patronized by Beirut-based Carwan Gallery (co-founded by Lecompte), reusing nylon powder from 3D printing. Carwan also presents new colours in Roberto Sironi’s series Ruins, while Rome-based gallery Giustini / Stagetti present the work Botanica by Studio Formafantasma.
New launch in this edition of Nomad St. Moritz is Linfa by Michela Cattai and Galleria Luisa Delle Piane: a vase series that mix waste material from Murano glass making and bronze waste from Fonderia Artistica Battaglia in Milan.
