One Must Visit the Nifular Depot When Attending Milan Design Week 2018Saturday 14 April 2018
One Must Visit the Nifular Depot When Attending Milan Design Week 2018 ⇒ In 2015, Nina Yashar, one of Milan’s most proficient design dealers and modern gallerists, opened the doors of the Nilufar Depot, a three-storey showroom that showcases design rarities. With the arrival of Milan Design Week, this makes the perfect opportunity for design lovers and collectors to visit this exceptional place at Viale Vincenzo Lancetti.
Since its inception, Nilufar Depot has become a point of reference for those who appreciate historical and contemporary design. Nevertheless, it also has a dedicated area focused between production and contemporary art that is meticulously designed in a more poetic and visionary manner. The gallery houses around 3,000 pieces from many emerging designers that Yashar has mentored over the years.
This highly curated space was designed by Milan-based architect Massimiliano Locatti and its concept was inspired by the famous Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Its composition is best described as being imposing and dramatic but also practical.

“I was dreaming of a huge space, but I never thought it would be so huge. It was designed as a warehouse with an almost industrial architecture, like the detachable railings to let the forklift in. Initially it was supposed to be a simple storage area, as my current warehouse is 100 km away from Milan. Then, making the setup for the last Salone del Mobile, it was so successful that I was forbidden to use it just as a warehouse. Every day we receive people coming here just to visit us. In other words, a great responsibility.” – Nina Yashar
