Laila and Nadia Gohar founded Gohar World in 2020; the “tableware universe,” as the sisters call it, forms networks between their New York studio and far-flung ateliers that manufacture the creations in Austria, Egypt, Italy, and Vietnam. This fall, Gohar World opened its first brick-and-mortar location, a quaint Nolita storefront bursting with the epicurean aesthetic Laila first articulated in her beloved dining experiences over the past few years.
For the shop, the sisters turned to longtime friend, Savvy Studio founder Rafael Prieto, who crafted a space defined by the entrance’s custom layered wallpaper, a trompe l’oeil of stone archways crumbling into secret gardens. Prieto worked with Wallpaper Projects to make the paper from photos he made in the South of France, while campaign photos for Gohar World’s Table IV holiday collection are the work of provocateur photographer Roe Ethridge. It includes a new line of wearables, including hair accessories, and will be for sale at the store along with a selection from previous collections and one-of-a-kind vintage finds. A new partnership with Champagne Lallier is also on the bubble, featuring a Mother of Pearl spoon sized for a bite of caviar or uni, and a dish to rest it upon.
