In the bustling heart of New York City, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) once again served as a captivating nexus of creativity and innovation. Amidst the vibrant energy of this renowned event, Nichetto Studio stood out as a beacon of design excellence, showcasing its latest designs and collaborations.

Under the adept guidance of ICFF Brand Directors Claire Pijoulat and Odile Hainaut, a compelling panel discussion titled 'The Art of Designing and Creating Meaningful Products' took centre stage. Within this forum, Swedish designer Luca Nichetto, the visionary founder of Nichetto Studio, joined forces with Daniel Germani, the esteemed Creative Director of Daniel Germani Designs and collaborator with Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens. Together, they embarked on an insightful exploration of the genesis and ethos behind the acclaimed CUBE collection.

Recipient of the prestigious NYCxDesign award in the Outdoor Products category, CUBE represents a paradigm shift in outdoor furniture. Seamlessly blending furniture design, enduring durability and impeccable craftsmanship, this collection has redefined the landscape of alfresco leisure.

Adding another layer of sophistication to Nichetto Studio's contemporary furniture designs is Friends, an exquisite sofa design crafted in collaboration with the talented Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance for Bernhardt Design. Reflecting on this partnership, Nichetto eloquently expressed, “Our studios merged into one, driven by the same purpose and respect,” encapsulating the harmony and creative synergy that defined this collaboration.

As the curtains drew to a close on ICFF, Nichetto Studio unveiled a mesmerising window display at Barovier & Toso's Venice boutique. Aptly named Water’s Edge, this innovative design paid homage to the storied tradition of Venetian glassmaking. Featuring the resplendent Diamante and Bollibolle collections artfully arranged in a pyramid, the display exuded a profound reverence for the elemental power and timeless allure of water.

In sum, Nichetto Studio's presence at ICFF underscored not only their unparalleled design prowess but also their unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity in the world of contemporary design.
