glocal magazine feat. Philippe Nigro - our 'métissage' collection creator
Born in Niece, France (1975), Philippe Nigro is a French designer. He has worked as a freelance designer since 1999, and also in collaboration with Michele De Lucchi. Alongside De Lucchi, Philippe Nigro created many design projects including furniture, lighting, interior design, architecture and scenography. In 2014 he was awarded Designer of the Year for the French furniture fair.
For Casati gallery he created a collection of marble benches called ‘métissage’, and decorative ‘market’ fruit baskets – all available at the gallery.
Polished brass, wood or marble baskets are an elegant addition to any interior.
The benches charm with the smoothness and curviness of lines, and unique materials from which they are created (marble, lava stone).
