Previous Exhibitions - Nilufar Gallery
Nilufarâ€™s first exhibitions were dedicated to Persian carpets, kilims, and gabbehs (from southern Persia), to Chinese and Tibetan carpets, and also to European Aubusson carpets. In 1988, Nilufar presented furnishings and carpets by Alvar Aalto, Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen, thus beginning its exploration of the juxtapositioning of rugs and furnishings from diverse epochs and regions of the worldâ€“an exploration which then was to find its natural continuation in the Crossings exhibitions of 1999 and 2000. 2001 delivered a review of the work of the French rationalists in the years preceding and following the Second World War (Adnet, Jansen, Leleu, Motte, Old, Perriand and ProuvĂ©) and also presented three silicone carpets realized especially for Nilufar by Gaetano Pesce.
In 2002, the exhibition Objets dâ€™affection introduced Italy to the work of Roger Tallon. Why, of 2003, explored the tension between rationalism and intuition in the projects of Borsani, Aalto, Boyer, Buzzi, Juhl, Mollino, Moos and Pergay. Gallery, in 2004, flanked an important group of objects and furnishings by Gio Ponti with the work of the great American designer Paul Evans. October 2005 saw the opening of the exhibition Metropolis: The Birth of a Style for the Global Cities, 1940â€“1980, with works by Josef Frank, James Mont, Jordan Mozer and Lino Sabattini.
