Philippe Nigro Urushi Vases

Philippe Nigro is a highly talented French product and furniture designer, who is always looking to experiment with glass, stone, wood, and, even, urushi. Casati Gallery started collaborating with Philippe in 2015, when he created for us a collection of stunning marble benches, such as the Métissage marble bench and the Métissage Marble bench with legs.

In 2017, after Philippe Nigro spent time in Japan, we were delighted once more to collaborate with Philippe when, in a great example of France-meets-Japan sensitivity, he created a series of vases made out of wood lacquered in urushi, of which we have a few astonishing prototypes. We are happy to introduce this urushi collection for your consideration.
