A sublime hilltop villa in Monaco will open up to the design world tomorrow for the inaugural edition of Nomad, a new take on the design fair launched by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte.

Built in 1902, the historic Villa La Vigie is one of the most prestigious properties on the French Riviera and the longtime former residence of fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld. More recently, it has served as a private hotel and event space, but for four days this April, its elegant rooms and ocean-view terraces became home to stunning pieces of collectible design.

Conceived as a more intimate, “bespoke” event that travels to an exciting new locale each year, this first run features leading galleries like David Gill Gallery, Nilufar, and Massimo De Carlo, with works from the Campana brothers, Arik Levy, the late Zaha Hadid, and more. There were also special projects by Serpentine Galleries and fashion designer Rick Owens. Take a gander!
