Brera Ambassador: Luca Nichetto
“It’s been interesting to witness the evolution of Fuorisalone in recent years, nowadays everything is more organized, only Milan can offer such a powerful design week.”
Born in Venice in 1976, designer Luca Nichetto started his career designing Murano glass products by Salviati. Today, he is undoubtedly one of the most talented contemporary designer, his creative works moving from product to interior design. Awarded with several prizes – most recently, the WALLPAPER* Design Award 2015 for his coffee set Sucabaruca – over the years Nichetto has been working as art director for different brands.
He was still a student when he attended his first design week, in 1995, whilst this year Nichetto will be one of the ambassador for the Brera Design District, which he likes to define as “the most interesting area, for it centers everything in the heart of Milan.” According to his own words, he has chosen the district for his exhibitions for he is interested “not just in creating an event, but because I really want the public to feel the climate and the atmospheres created by the entire district. A blend of melting-pot, historical buildings, apartments, courtyards and different places, that otherwise people would not have the chance to visit.”
Nichetto will be attending the Brera Design District with the Swedish brand Kinnarps, with an exhibition interpreting the trend report on new ways to live your office space (Largo Treves 5, entrance from Via Solferino). Also, the designer will introduce BonBon, a set of mirrored glass tables for the Check brand Verreum (Via Dell’Orso 12), whilst the Foscarini Spazio Brera showroom (Via Fiori Chiari 28) will display a brand new version of Plass lamps and the new table lamp Kurage, designed with Nendo.
