Milan 2013 preview: Nichetto=Nendo exhibition

The NICHETTO=NENDO exhibition will take place during Milan Design Week 2013, April 9th to14th, at Foro Buonaparte 48, 20121 Milan.

Designers Luca Nichetto and Oki Sato have teamed up to create a collection of seven co-designed, co-conceived products. After that fateful first meeting in Stockholm in December of 2012, rather than showing existing work together they decided to make products together to highlight their mutual respect and the affinity between their work.

Nendo: “A sofa like an archipelago, divided into small parts rather than one great mass.”

Nichetto: “Taking the way that Venice’s many islands are connected by narrow bridges as the image, we designed thin legs that seem to float on the water surface and connected the cushions. We also developed side tables in two different shapes.”

Nendo will also show a zig-zagging wooden bookshelf in Milan and haverefurbished the womenswear floor in the city’s La Rinascente department store.

Luca Nichetto installed his idea of the house of the future at imm cologne earlier this year and presented a lounge chair with a folding backrest at the same event.
