An exclusive destination that suggests the exquisite refinement and elegance of a bygone New York welcomes the event on collectible design each year, now at its tenth anniversary. Fifty galleries from around the world become a fascinating premium “cabinet de curiosités” with rare artifacts, emerging talents, historic and iconic pieces.
A genuine temple of creative expressions, between new avant-garde, experimentation and impossible to find editions of the great masters, presented by the selected galleries. Famous names like Future Perfect, Patrick Parrish Gallery, Friedman Benda, R&Company, Negropontes, Magen H Gallery, Todd Merrill Studio, Twenty First Gallery, Wexler Gallery, Maison Gerard, Maison Rapin, joined for this special edition by the highly acclaimed Atelier Courbet, Culture Object, Dobrinka Salzman Gallery, and Lobel Modern.
Produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates with exceptional partners like Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection, this event has become a reference point for collectors, with special initiatives and immersive experiences. This year Salon Art+Design presents a special mise-en-scène in the halls and the impressive staircase of the Park Avenue Armory.
Striking locations where art intersects with the concept of function through installations created for the occasion, such as the table by the Italian luxury brand Unica with its precious finishes, bright colors and artistic details, or the goldsmith’s art shaped by sculptors, architects, designers and painters, as narrated by the gallery Didier.
In an exquisite combination of styles – between Italian Gothic and Byzantine influences – the Altana collection by Nathan Litera is inspired by Venetian palaces, evoking architectural details through materials like alabaster, stone and marble, while the aesthetic potential of classical art is translated in the wall art of the studio Trove, founded by the artists Jee Levin and Randall Buck, with impressive photographic enlargements.
Peter Lane – a ceramist from New York specialized in architectural installation, monumental furnishings and decorative objects made with hand carving techniques and inspired by the materials themselves – presents a striking wall sculpture in the Drill Hall, completed by site-specific furnishings created for the Salon.
Inside the library, the Brazilian jewelry designer Silvia Furmanovich unveils her iconic creations, including new collections of bags with wooden inlays, stools, trays, vases and tables. Immersed in an evocative setting, as a tribute to the Amazon jungle.
