kinder MODERN Exhibits at the Architectural Digest Design Show
We are proud of our NoMad neighbors at kinder MODERN for being part of a select group of the world’s best designers and design brands presented by Architectural Digest at its annual design show.
The show attracted more than 40,000 design enthusiasts to view the latest work of a carefully curated group of leading design companies such as Flavor Paper, Gaggenau, Big Chill and La Cornue. The four-day event was held March 17–20 at Piers 92 and 94, on the Hudson River, in New York City.
“It was an honor to be among an incredible selection of designers and brands as we showcased the newest in contemporary design for children,” kinder MODERN founder and Creative Director Lora Appleton told us. “We were excited to see many of our neighborhood designers and architects at the show and have the opportunity to connect with buyers and families.”
Even among the edgy designers that increasingly populate NoMad, kinder MODERN stands out as unique. The gallery specializes in finding and displaying 20th century vintage children’s design as well as new artful and visionary furniture, accessories and design objects for children. Its vintage pieces, which form the kM Historical Modern Collection, include works by famous designers like Hans Wegner and Alvar Alto. For new pieces in the kM Contemporary Collection, both fresh and familiar talents from the design world work with kinder MODERN to develop ideas for groundbreaking luxury children’s lighting and furniture.
Numerous publications have covered kinder MODERN, such as The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vogue and, of course, Architectural Digest.
“We love NoMad for its vibrant, ever-growing community of designers, architects, and other creative companies,” Appleton says. “It’s wonderful being so close to the park and all the nice spots to snag an after-work drink. There is a wonderful quality of life here in NoMad.”
Congratulations to kinder MODERN, and we wish our friends there continued success.
