The ‘Milano Study’, by young designers of Politecnico di Milano, is one of five Studies For Nature projects sponsored by Finnish design brand Nikari, that so far have included works by Aalto University, GDUT and Sheridan College students.

The Milano study is made by bending and molding a thin ash veneer. The thickness of the veneer has to be very precise in order to reach the right kind of radius. The solid wood base is also made of ash.

The young designers of Politecnico di Milano, Alessandro Grasso, Alexandra Lunardi, Sara Flamigni and Emanuele Colzani, describe their work, “Milano study was inspired by the organic, natural shapes – such as leaves, flowers, drops of water. For this reason we wanted to use a material that could be found in nature but that, at the same time, could give us flexibility to shape it as we desired.”
