Nilufar Gallery

Nilufar is known today as one of Italy’s most active and original galleries in the fields of historical design and antique Oriental carpets and furniture. The gallery–now housed in a three-storey space on Milan’s prestigious via della Spiga–was founded by Nina Yashar in 1979 and, since then, has presented exhibitions of an unmistakable style: always eclectic, and always to be read in novel, unexpected ways. November 2006 saw the opening of the exhibition Short Cuts: a fascinating collection of different designers and pieces, Ignazio Gardella, Piero Fornasetti, Gaetano Pesce, Jacques Adnet and Paul Evans, just to mention a few. Once merged and linked together, they give a unique rich mosaic work. “Many small short cuts turn into a beautiful full-length film.”

Previous Exhibitions

Nilufar’s first exhibitions were dedicated to Persian carpets, kilims, and gabbehs (from southern Persia), to Chinese and Tibetan carpets, and also to European Aubusson carpets.

In 2002, the exhibition Objets d’affection introduced Italy to the work of Roger Tallon. Why, of 2003, explored the tension between rationalism and intuition in the projects of Borsani, Aalto, Boyer, Buzzi, Juhl, Mollino, Moos and Pergay. Gallery, in 2004, flanked an important group of objects and furnishings by Gio Ponti with the work of the great American d... [ Read all ]
