PAN Amsterdam X RESIDENCE X The Wunderkammer

Fair for art, antiques and design

Every year more than 45,000 art lovers are inspired and tempted by the many thousands of works of art at PAN in Amsterdam. Whether your interest lies in classical antiquity, old masters, photography, contemporary art, antiques, designer furniture or decorative objects, PAN is the perfect place to compare art, gather information and make surprising discoveries. PAN stands for Pictura Antiquairs Nationaal and is the national counterpart to the Antiquairs International & Pictura Fine Art Fair (later named TEFAF in Maastricht) which was organized by the same team.

For the fifth consecutive year, PAN collaborates with Residence Magazine, the leading magazine in the Netherlands for the cosmopolitan reader, taste maker & interior designer. Every year, an interior designer is invited by Residence to design their stand. The Wunderkammer was invited to design the 2017 edition.

“We will design a real Wunderkammer (cabinet of curiosities) on the exhibition floor, showing objects of PAN gallery owners, alternated with our own objects. An interior in our opinion is completed by art, rarities and collections. Every person likes something or can get excited about something. We believe that every beautiful house can use a small dose of “Wunders“. A beautiful painting, a sculpture, a piece of nature or a special piece of furniture gives soul to every house and thus makes a “Home” of a “House.” – Florian Seyd

A rarity cabinet is a very accessible way of creating conversations about art. This is also suitable for young art collectors or collectors who are starting collectors, and that is exactly the target group we want to target this year at PAN Amsterdam. It is also a beautiful expression of how you can combine art and interiors and possibly trigger the imagination. The idea is that the visitor of this Wunderkammer  slows down, rests and the eyes are to travel along all objects and floral creations in this cabinet of curiosities. Spontaneously, conversations about art and interior also arise.

The stand will be an ultimate source of inspiration and starting point for your PAN visit, and Residence will host several talks on interior, art and design in collaboration with The Young Collectors Circle.

Objects from: SmithDavidson Gallery, Kunsthandel Inez Stodel, Morentz, A.Aardewerk, Eigenmann Juwelen, Dr.Lennart Booij en Steltman Juwelen.
