Luca Nichetto

His principles: pragmatism and poetry  

Luca Nichetto was born in Venice, where he graduated in Industrial Design at the IUAV, the University Institute of Architecture. He began his business career by cooperating with Salviati and Foscarini; afterwards he founded Nichetto&Partners Design Studio, which deals both with Industrial Design and Design Consultant. He has received many international prizes and works for some of the most important international companies.

Instinctive, inquiring, critical, Nichetto is one of those designers who are always eager to measure themselves with anything new and who consider business as the ultimate teacher in life “and that's where design is of value”. This provides grounds for growth, and Nichetto has the ability to dress the part of the client, to think of his object as a project for that specific company, with that exact purpose. He often quotes Magistretti: “Design needs a father and a mother: the designer and the entrepreneur”.
 

Luca Nichetto works in the world and with the world bringing with him his personal know-how made of knowledge of materials, craftsmanship and manufacturing techniques, Italian customs and habits, especially with regard to conviviality. And, last but not least, his skills as an architect.
