ST. MORITZ CHESA PLANTA SWITZERLAND

NOMAD revisits the classic idea of fairs and exhibitions to innovate a new format for the xxi century. A travelling event for collectable design, NOMAD brings together a selection of the world’s leading galleries in incredible architectural locations.
In February 2019 Nomad St. Moritz will return to Chesa Planta, the prestigious mansion in the heart of the Swiss Alps. This edition builds on the success of NOMAD MONACO, which took place in April 2017 and 2018 in the famous Villa La Vigie in Monaco, against the stunning backdrop of the french riviera.
St. Moritz is one of the most famous winter holiday destinations in the world. Twice the host city for the winter olympics, it has been designated a Unesco world heritage site. Its name is virtually a trademark, synonymous worldwide with style, elegance, and class.
Chesa Planta was built in 1595. It is an impressive example of an engadin aristocrat’s house, and of domestic culture in the 18th and 19th centuries. Gorgeously carved wood-panelled rooms, beautifully painted dining rooms, and elaborate ceramic stoves will set the scene for this first edition of NOMAD ST-MORITZ.
Conceived by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, NOMAD establishes a unique dialog between gallery works and a very personal context, creating a community of individuals looking for an unusual experience.
