Following the success of the previous editions in Paris, Beirut and Milan, Nilufar Gallery, in collaboration with Shalini Misra Ltd, presents the 5th edition of SQUAT, which launched for the first time in London on 7 June 2016.
Founded in 2012 by Nilufar Gallery owner Nina Yashar, the ongoing project explores a new concept of exhibition that combines design, art and architecture and gives life to new and original domestic landscapes. SQUAT takes place in different locations and platforms, playing with diverse cultural, geographical and architecture environments.
To launch this first ever London edition Nina Yashar teamed up with Shalini Misra and Mehves Ariburnu, Director and Creative Advisor at Shalini Misra Ltd respectively. The creative trio have transformed one of Shalini Misra’s development projects, a 230sq m. Victorian lateral corner apartment located on South Audley Street, in the heart of Mayfair, into a high-concept decorative living space.
Inspired by the historic apartment’s distinctive features, the interiors challenge the boundaries between art, design and architecture, creating an innovative open dialogue and connecting different disciplines.
SQUAT presents unique design pieces from Nilufar Gallery’s remarkable collection. These run the gamut from historic works by design masters such as Gio Ponti and Ico Parisi to creations by leading contemporary designers and young talents, such as Patricia Urquiola, Martino Gamper and Bethan Laura Wood.
