Places of design: Nilufar Gallery & Depot

Testo di Tiziana D'Amico

A stop in the heart of Milan, a must for design enthusiasts, is definitely the Nilufar Gallery: where design and art meet and are put on sale.

A gallery that exhibits and sells modern and contemporary design objects, often giving voice to avant-garde projects or emerging designers. In addition to the inevitable masters. A special place where each piece of furniture is capable of telling a story. And telling stories is precisely the intent of Nina Yashar who, in 1979, founded the gallery. At first this charming place specialized in antique carpets, a passion Nina inherited from her Iranian parents. Today those refined rugs stand side by side and interact with equally chosen pieces of design in a story with several voices.

In 2015, in a former silverware factory, Nina Yashar inaugurated a new location, Nilufar Depot, perfect theater of encounter and contamination between past and present.
