Nilufar returns to miart 2020 -digital edition from September 11th to 13th- with an important selection that encompasses past and future, through the present.

A conversation between two important interlocutors, Martino Gamper and Gio Ponti. The Milanese gallery features a console created by Gamper for the 2008 performance “Gio Ponti translated by Martino Gamper” which reinterprets the furnishings of Ponti for the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento and the ironic Wikatoria pouf in pony and Mongolia, combined with exclusive upholstered items by Gio Ponti such as the bergère used as a model for the rooms of the Royal Hotel in Naples.

Bergère armchair by Gio Ponti – Italy, 1955 approx.

Console by Martino Gamper – Italy, 2008

Wikatoria stools by Martino Gamper – UK, 2018

To complete the selection, sophisticated low tables characterized by crystal tops, floor lamps and wall lamps from Ponti’s prolific production, a contemporary composition of Berber rugs by Martino Gamper and two sculptural pendant lamps, mod. 2045p and Torre Velasca, by B.B.P.R.
