In last year’s edition of NOMAD Monaco, the art gallery Nilufar was one of the most antecipated exhibithors to showcase it’s new selection of collectible designs. This spring, the Guise collection by Odd Matter, with its peculiar shapes and colors, selected by the gallery, is extremely captivating.
NOMAD Monaco: “Guise Low Table” (2019) by Odd Matter. Made of polystirene and spray. Since the end of the Nineties, Nilufar knows how to find its own unique place, so it became a reference point to everyone devoted to historical design and to people who love to follow the trends and understand the evolution of contemporary design.

Nomad Monaco: “Guise Vase” (2019) by Odd Matter. Made of EPS foam and spray. Above all, Nilufar inhabits that fine line between artistic knowledge, poetry and visionary ideas, all of them characteristic of contemporary art. Nina Yashar is the gallery’s founder and works with her sister Nilu plus a team of five people. Nilufar was present in several editions of Pavillon des Arts et du Design in Paris and is always in the spotlight at Design Miami/Basel. This art gallery also has its own little manifesto, composed of three words: Discovering, Crossing, Creating. Photo: ©Nilufar
By Wendy Andreu, we have the natural charm and softness of cotton in her carpets and chairs.
