Lying in the Upper Engadine at an altitude of 1,856 m, the village of St. Moritz becomes a holiday home for many collectors each winter.
The Chesa Planta Museum
Proclaiming its status as a pioneer of winter tourism (its first luxury hotel opened in 1864), the Swiss resort with a population of 5,000 contains ten galleries open all year round, including the highly international Karsten Greve, Robilant & Voena and Hauser & Wirth. It is thus a small arts capital attracting a Swiss, German, British, American and Russian clientele, who will be entertained by a tailor-made edition of the Nomad fair from March 25 to 28.
For the third year running, despite the health restrictions, the young itinerant design and contemporary art fair is taking over the charming Chesa Planta Museum, housed in a 16th-century building in Samedan, less than 10 km from Saint-Moritz. NB: registration is required for the event.
Founded in 2016 by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, this event—also present in Venice and Monaco—aims to stand out through its highly exclusive character in terms of both exhibitors and guests. The idea is to set up a showroom, immersing visitors in a series of intimate showcases with sophisticated designs. The twenty-odd exhibitors include the contemporary art gallery Thaddaeus Ropac, Etage Projects from Copenhagen, the Dutch Morentz Gallery, the Zurich-based Angela Weber Möbel and the Rossella Colombari and Luisa Delle Piane galleries from Milan, as well as interior designer Francesca Neri Antonelli and glass designer Marie-Rose Kahane, in partnership with the jeweler Antonia Miletto.
