Organised by Sanford Smith + Associates, the annual New York fair is aimed at art and design collectors. Exhibits include furniture, lighting, glass and ceramics, as well as decorative and fine art, from the collections of international galleries.
The Salon Art + Design has announced that this year, its sixth edition, will include 56 galleries from 11 countries – including the US, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Monaco, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
Among those exhibiting is London's David Gill Gallery, which will present late architect Zaha Hadid's Liquid Glacial Table, and Sarah Myerscough Gallery, which will show a table designed by Duffy London to look like a watery abyss.
Works from British designer Faye Toogood's Assemblage 5 collection, including the shapely Roly-Poly chair and semi-circular Earth Tapestry, will form part of New York gallery Friedman Benda's exhibit. Furniture made from beech rods by German designer Pia Maria Raeder will be shown at Paris-based Galerie BSL's stand.
Amsterdam design studio Formafantasma's Delta collection based on Roman artefacts and architecture will be among the lighting designs at the fair.
Other unusual smaller objects will include Michael Eden's Wedgwoodn't Vases, which are created using rapid manufacturing and ceramic materials that don't need firing. The vase collection forms a continuation of the project that Eden began during his studies at the Royal College of Art in London.
Along with contemporary pieces, visitors can also expect to see collectible antiques, and 20th-century century designs in popular styles such as art nouveau, art deco, and mid-century modern.
"We are delighted to announce this extraordinary lineup of distinguished exhibitors," said the fair's executive director Jill Bokor.
"This year's fair is poised to present an ever broadening spectrum of the world's great design with an exploration of emerging architectural furniture and decorative art enhanced by blue-chip modern art."
Also at this year's The Salon Art + Design, Italian artist and jeweller Giampiero Bodino of High Jewellery Maison will present an exhibition on his home country's jewellery design. The showcase will be located in Park Avenue Armory's historic Library Room, designed by 19th century American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany.
