Wednesday night we hosted the first Canadian exhibition for Italian designer Luca Nichetto. It was an incredibly cold night, but we were so happy to see the showroom quickly fill with hundreds of people for our opening reception.
A platter of meats, cheeses, and our newly installed brass pendant lights by Jonas Lindvall for Wastberg.
The exhibition was the debut of the Sucabaruca coffee set, as well as a retrospective of some of Luca’s most iconic works.
The round tables from the Wolfgang series Luca designed for Fornasarig created a collection of “lilly pads” for displaying all of the exhibited works.
Luca Nichetto talking to Scott Eunson who made the model used to create the porcelain slip-cast for the coffee set.
The next morning Juli took some photographs of the showroom without people in them. Ceramic bookend for Petite Friture.
We debuted the coloured versions of Sucabaruca during the exhibition, so these haven’t been shown anywhere yet. The collection called “pop” is a tribute to the eclectic artist Jean-Paul Goude. As well as the 1980s Memphis movement.
The white porcelian set is inspired the fashion designer Martin Margiela.
The pastel tones are reminiscent of the colours and sensitivity used in Japanese architecture.
Stereo chair with oak legs for Casamania, Italy and a sandcast aluminum and oak side table for David Design, Sweden. Sitting on top is Luca’s timeline bowl for Swedish brass maker Skultuna.
A cedar wood “Doc” car designed for part of the collection of toy cars by TobeUs – a project, 100% TobeUs, devised by Matteo Ragni.
Its goal is to take us back in time to the age of lightheartedness, if only for a few moments.
We received two Design Lines loves tags, thank you very much for the support!
Red Spoon vases for Salviati, Stewie floor lamp for Foscarini, and Timeline bowls for Skultuna.
Ceramic clocks for Petite Friture.
A ceramic floor lamp called “Vader” for Swedish design company David Design, as well as a concrete bench designed for Beijing Design week.
A beautiful glass vase for Salviati.
The ceramic umbra vase for Bosa.
Sali Tabacchi designed an incredible book to compliment the exhibition. Luca had the idea of using these brass paper weights to keep the book open and lined them up on our long teak shelf.
