Squat #1 by Dimore Studio, Nilufar Gallery & Balice Hertling
Three exciting forces have gone together for the concept space Squat #1 in Paris during the annual art fair FIAC 2012.
Milanese interior design studio Dimore have teamed forces with Milan based design gallery Nilufar and Paris based art gallery Balice Hertling to create the 350 sqm pop-up apartment situated just above Avenue Victor Hugo in Paris’ most sought after area the 16th arrondissement.
Mid century design pieces are placed along contemporary art as well as Dimore Studio’s own furniture pieces and limited edition objects from the archives of Nilufar and much more. Among others, rare pieces from Jacques Adnet, Venini and Gio Ponti are to be found among contemporary pieces by Martino Gamper and Bethan Woods.
The space is an eclectic treasure chest of unique pieces and a wonderful marriage of design, interiors and art.
The space is open to the public until November and because of the success, Nina Yashar of Milan’s Nilufar Gallery is considering more of these pop up apartments around other major cities in Europe.
