'Cart' by Luca Nichetto for Bonaldo

In Milan the Italian manufacturer Bonaldo presented this multi-purpose chair designed by the young and extremely active designer Luca Nichetto. ‘Cart’ is composed of a thick ergonomic polyurethane shell and a metal base and available in grey, white, red, anthracite and ivory.

“I wanted a product that got noticed, where design was based on functionality. Cart has a rather ‘50s design and very special shapes, especially when viewed from the back. It is also extremely functional: it can be stacked with a mechanism like that used for supermarket trolleys – the shopping carts from which this product takes its name”, says Luca Nichetto.

Ludovica and Roberto Palomba’s latest project for Foscarini is the result of a long research process that has led to the creation of Fly-Fly; a hanging lamp created with a polycarbonate injection moulding technique that guarantees 360° lighting.

The lamp features a special form that recalls an elegant hat, with wings that create a sensation of lightness and a satin finish that renders it a discrete, elegant presence that will enhance any environment with its aerial feel.

Available in white and orange
