Demisch Danant is pleased to present Maria Pergay in the first edition of NOMAD St. Moritz. To celebrate Pergay’s 60-year career and many contributions to the fields of decorative arts and design, this presentation is the first of a yearlong series of global exhibitions dedicated to Pergay’s work from the past decade. Always pursuing her core artistic vision, these pieces are the culmination of her pathbreaking work in stainless steel, combined to striking effect with mother of pearl, lacquer and precious woods.
NOMAD is a travelling event for collectable design. Set in historic architectural locations, it revisits the classic idea of fairs and exhibitions. NOMAD St. Moritz will take place in Chesa Planta. Built in 1595, it is an impressive example of an Engadin aristocrat’s mansion and of domestic culture in the 18th and 19th centuries. Given Pergay’s strong references to the forms of 18th century, like Caviar Cabinet (2005) and Ribbon Pouf (2010), Chesa Planta provides a perfect setting for these works.
