From storage space to designer gallery.

Tehran-born, Milan-based gallerist Nina Yashar operates Nilufar—meaning lotus in Farsi—out of an ex-industrial 1,500 square meter space in northern Milan, a site she once used as storage for her store on Via della Spiga (pictured) and later transformed into a gallery to showcase a collection of over 3,000 pieces of historic and contemporary design. The three-story space takes in everything from 19th-century Chinese tapestry, to Lina Bo Bardi-designed chairs from the mid-1900s to contemporary Scandinavian homeware, as well as cutting-edge works from emerging artists spotted by Yashar over the years.
