Luca Nichetto’s designs tell stories. They possess both a sensual profundity and a playful lightness. The designer’s ability to pull off this balancing act is written into his DNA: Nichetto grew up in Venice and today lives in Stockholm. Both these worlds, with all their cultural facets and contrasts, are imprinted on his creative output. Born on the island of Murano, he studied at the Art Institute of Venice and the University Institute of Architecture of Venice, and launched his career with his first commissions from the famous Salviati glass blowing factory. He set up a design office in Venice in 2006, and opened his Stockholm studio in 2011. Nichetto designs glassware and light fittings, furniture and textiles for Cassina, De Padova, Foscarini, Svenskt Tenn and many other manufacturers. He also creates window displays for French luxury goods brand Hermès. His work has won many awards and is exhibited all over the world.
