Phillips announces exclusive partnership with NOMAD
LONDON.-Phillips partnered with NOMAD this Autumn to present a virtual destination for private sales of art and design, with a selection inspired by Palais Bulles, a masterpiece of architecture in Théoule-sur-Mer, near Cannes. In response to the special circumstances this year, Phillips and NOMAD have collaborated to create a digital experience on Phillips.com, where, as well as the 50 selected works submitted by galleries worldwide, visitors will also find editorial content, digital tours, and interviews. The first online edition of NOMAD will feature select works from galleries such as Gallery FUMI, Fornasetti, Thomsen Gallery, Patrick Seguin, and Yves Macaux. Part of the proceeds of private sales made throughout this collaboration will be donated to The Design Museum in order to sustain one of the world’s most integral design institutions. NOMAD’s virtual destination will be live on Phillips.com from 28 September to 11 October 2020.
Domenico Raimondo, Head of Design, Europe and Senior International Specialist at Phillips, said, “We are delighted to continue our ongoing partnership with NOMAD through this latest collaboration to present NOMAD Virtual Destination. In recent months we have witnessed an amazing response in support of the arts and NOMAD Virtual Destination is exemplary of this collaborative effort to take art and design online through digital initiatives. As we navigate this new world order it is imperative that we continue to adapt and develop our digital capabilities in order to create a dynamic and enriching virtual experience for clients around the world and so we look forward to introducing collectors to this exceptional selection of 50 modern and contemporary design pieces.”
Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, NOMAD Founders, said, “NOMAD is the only art and design showcase that offers the experience of a place and the intimacy of a journey. We are proud to have partnered with PHILLIPS to translate this special format into a virtual encounter for the very first time.”
Tim Marlow, Chief Executive and Director of the Design Museum said: “It is a privilege to be involved in the curation of the first edition of Nomad Virtual Destination. It was particularly exciting to be able to include some exquisite pieces by Charlotte Perriand, as the museum is about to announce a major project involving this giant of 20th century design for 2021.”
