‘Drizzle’ shelving system by Luca Nichetto for Gallotti & Radice
Inspired by the long, vertical lines of the falling rain, the award-winning Venetian designer Luca Nichetto has developed ‘Drizzle’, an aptly-named shelving system for the Italian crystal specialists Gallotti & Radice. Unveiled earlier this year during Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the linear, grid-like bookshelf is composed of multiple metal elements that support and frame the shelves which are made of either transparent or frosted glass. Available in multiple colourways, ‘Drizzle’ can be arranged in a virtually infinite number of configurations. (more…)
Hyde version of the ‘Float’ table by Luca Nichetto for La Chance; photo by Stanislas Wolff
Bold, inverted conical sphere seems to balance on its apex in Luca Nichetto‘s latest table design for the recently-launched French furniture brand La Chance. Aptly named ‘Float’, the seemingly simple, uncomplicated form of the table has been achieved thanks to the complex metal leaf turnery technology which is normally employed in aircraft production. Featuring a reflective, mirrored base, ‘Float’ is available in two colour versions: high-gloss Lamborghini yellow or sombre matte grey aluminium finish. The design was unveiled, along with La Chance’s debut ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ collection, during this year’s Salone del Mobile at MOST. (more…)

Named after ‘a phonetic transposition of the Japanese word for “tray”’, ‘Torei’ can be arranged and grouped in multiple combinations or used individually, according to need. The elegant and multifunctional system was presented earlier last month during the Salone del Mobile fair. (more…)
Sketch of the 'Swell' pen holder by Luca Nichetto
There seems to be no stopping the Venetian designer Luca Nichetto. At least judging by the recent edition of Milan’s Salone del Mobile where this acclaimed industrial designer who divides his time between his native Italy and Sweden, launched no less than 17 brand new products for 11 international labels such as Cassina, DePadova, Established&Sons and Foscarini to name just a few. Among those numerous tables, sofas, chairs or lamps, all of which bore Nichetto’s signature clean lines, bold colours and subtly witty and humorous character, there was also this gracefully simple and neat collection of concrete desk accessories.

With his latest design, the award-winning Italian designer Luca Nichetto, whom we had the pleasure of meeting during our trip to Foscarini’s HQ, revisits his native Venice and the centuries-old glassmaking traditions of Murano island. Inspired by the said ‘traditional glass lanterns made on the island of Murano,’ the new, dramatic pendant light is manufactured by the British company Established&Sons and it is Nichetto’s second product for the London-based brand.

Two weeks ago, Dailytonic has paid a visit to the headquarters of one of our favourite (no exaggeration) Italian lighting brands, Foscarini, where, along with a small group of other international design enthusiasts from Muuuz, Yatzer and DesignMilk to name a few, we have met the wonderful team Foscarini who took us on an inspiring tour within the company’s airy, glass-cladded base located in the northern Italian comune of Marcon, half-an-hour drive from what we have learnt must be one of the most picturesque cities in the world, Venice.
