NOMAD St. Moritz takes place February 6—9 for its third winter edition. Held in the historic alpine residence of Chesa Planta, NOMAD is an invite-only traveling showcase of design and contemporary art founded by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte. It offers collectors, designers, architects, and art professionals an intimate first-look at rare collectible items, unseen objects, and limited editions.
This week, attendees will find a range of textile art, ceramics, glass objects, new editions, works created through experimental processes, and other presentations. First-time presenter The Invisible Collection has curated “Le Salon,” an immersive installation bringing textiles from names like Shahad Alazzaz and Pierre Yovanovitch. Carwan Gallery will present Canadian artist Omer Arbel’s “113” series of bronze sculptures. Creatives like Liselotte Watkins, Formafantasma, and Terence Woodgate will debut unique design pieces like ceramic vessels, lamps, and tables. And John Armleder will show a series of his Murano glass works made with Venetian glass master Silvano Signoretto.
Other highlights include Angela Weber Möbel’s “The Inventory of Happiness,” a showcase of historical pieces that have become modern icons (like Marco Zanuso’s Lady armchair), and special projects by Au Départ Paris and Mazzoleni, Aliante Partners, Volumnia, and Fornasetti. Galleri Format Oslo will also present work by Karen Klim and a showcase of Italian design masters includes works by Piero Lissoni, Gio Ponti, and Andrea Branzi.
