Salon Art + Design fair presents collectible art and design in New York

Dezeen promotion: Salon Art + Design takes place in November, making it the "first major design fair to take place in New York since 2019". Dezeen readers can receive a 20 per cent discount on their ticket.

Based at Park Avenue Armory in New York, Salon Art + Design was launched by Sanford L Smith + Associates as a major fair dedicated to celebrating global art and design.

The fair celebrates its ten-year anniversary at this year's edition from 11-15 November, when it will showcase a diverse range of collectible art and design, including ceramics and lighting.

Pieces on show date from the 1920s to the present day and include work by both well-known and emerging artists.

The fair will exhibit collectible design from over 11 countries, including tribal and Japanese design and pre-Columbian work.

This year the fair will also show jewellery for the first time, including Didier Ltd of London's collection, which includes a Lalanne necklace and bracelet.

"The fair's 10th anniversary will celebrate not only the world's finest art and design but the opportunity to experience it in person, the first major design fair to take place in New York since 2019," said the Salon Art + Design organisers.

A diverse range of western design will be exhibited, including contemporary and art nouveau pieces from galleries such as Chastel Maréchal, Maison Gerard, Friedman Benda, Priveekoelletie, and R & Company.

"The fair is also excited to welcome back such galleries as London's Michael Goedhuis Gallery who had been a past exhibitor but taken a break for the last few years," said the organisers.

American galleries that have partnered with the fair include Carole Davenport Japanese Art, Throckmorton Fine Art, Onishi Gallery, Ateliers Courbet, Gallery Dobrinka Salzman, and Culture Object.

Lost City Arts will exhibit a range of American and European pieces, including the Seagull Chair and Ottoman by Gosta Berg.

A number of sculptural pieces will also be on display, including Luiza Miller's coffee table exhibited by Magen H Gallery, Wendell Castle's Blowin' in the Wind, and Ron Arad's chair-like sculpture showcased by Geoffrey Diner Gallery.

Also on show during the fair is Silvia Furmanovich's jewellery. The collection will be presented in the Armory's historic Library Room, which will be transformed into a Brazilian rainforest installation.

"Collectible design is now more desirable than ever," said Jill Bokor, executive director of Salon. "People who have been stuck at home look around, and after a certain point, their eyes need refreshing."

"They realise the need for a new dining table, they want to change their lighting, or realise that a new ceramic would brighten their homes; they may have moved or renovated, and this has created newfound craving to change their mise-en-scene," she added.

"As New York returns to normal, there is a hunger for connection and engagement, and Salon will provide that to its audience."
