PAD Genève is Geneva’s first design art fair devoted exclusively to modern and contemporary furniture and the decorative arts.
In February 2018, 27 of the world’s top design galleries were invited to participate in the inaugural fair housed at the Palexpo, joining the already existing contemporary art fair artgenève. Each gallery specializes in a specific time period, style or collection of individual designers. In one convenient location, the fair provides an opportunity for both new and established collectors to discover the evolution of historic and contemporary design, as well as buy the best pieces available on the market today.
This new type of fair allows collectors, designers and the general public to gain and overview of the finest collections of carefully curated twentieth and twenty-first century design, by the world’s foremost galleries and specialists.
The interest in design market continues to grow alongside modern and contemporary art, this inspiring the artgenève and PAD Genève partnership in 2018 and continuing today. Each fair, complementing the other, coming together to beautifully combine both the fine and decorative arts under one roof.
Last year, PAD Genève attracted over 20,000 collectors and design enthusiasts over 5 days.
For its second edition, PAD Genève returns to the Palexpo alongside artgenève with an increased number of exhibitors further highlighting the symbiotic relationship between contemporary art and design.
