GREEN BOXES - Nilufar Colors

Frivolous, toxic, dangerous, ill-fated… As one of the most controversial colors, green was rarely used amongst painters at the turn of XIX and XX Century. While Piet Mondrian considered it “worthless”, green and its shades were almost always missing in design objects, decoration and furniture from the post-war period.

Countertrending this historical suppression, Nilufar presents a selection of works exalting the power of this peculiar shade. From the timeless elegance of Joaquim Tenreiro’s armchairs to Gino Sarfatti’s 584/G table lamp, green creates the space for more contemporary creative flairs, including the works, amongst others, of Odd Matter, Caturegli Formica and Bethan Laura Wood.
