NOMAD Virtual Destination Palais Bulles is an online event created in collaboration with the Phillips auction house.

A virtual destination for private sales of art and design, with a selection inspired by Palais Bulles, a masterpiece of organic architecture in Théoule-Sur-Mer, near Cannes. In response to the special circumstances this year NOMAD and Phillips have collaborated to create a digital experience.

Fornasetti presents a vintage Venetian blind. The first design for these objects – made by Piero Fornasetti featuring the Procuratie decoration – was created at the request of Gio Ponti, who had been commissioned to design the auditorium on the eighth floor of the Time Life Building (New York City) in the early 1960s. As was the custom of the Fornasetti atelier, other decorative proposals would follow, including the Soli e Lune motif on display at NOMAD.

Part of the proceeds of the private sale will be donated to The Design Museum in order to sustain one of the world’s most important design institutions.
