Squat 6 - Los Angeles 2019

December 20, 2019 - March 31, 2020
830 North Highland Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90038

Following the success of its previous editions in Paris, Beirut, Milan, New York and London, Nilufar Gallery opens the doors of SQUAT Los Angeles. Housed at 830 North Highland Avenue, SQUAT Los Angeles showcases a curated presentation of modern masters and contemporary design: over a period of four months (20 December 2019 – 31 March 2020), Nilufar transforms a 500 sqm industrial space into a series of tangled atmospheres combining the work by over 40 designers. Arranged around seven unique set-ups and a central forestage, SQUAT Los Angeles includes over 150 design pieces, from historic works to a series of experimentations by leading contemporary designers and emerging talents, including a set-up entirely curated by Italian outdoor space designer Derek Castiglioni.

Marking the transition between each atmosphere, six translucent curtains, made of Dedar’s Zen Light, enrich the space with a true textile scenography. The fabric’s metallic and open leno knit does not only invite visitors to walk through the space, but consistently allow them to gaze into the entirety of the set-up. The fabric, characterized by a soft, full drape and natural look, features a neutral color, lending an intangible yet solid quality to the space.
