Designer Luca Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976 and raised on the small island of Murano. As a child he didn’t understand that designing was a profession and something that people worked with. To him it was the norm – present in every part of daily life. With a glassblower grandfather, family, friends and neighbours in the glass industry, there really wasn’t anything else. And it was growing up in this environment, with the glassblowing craft and the island’s wealth of colour that eventually made their mark on his artistic style.
Nichetto first came in contact with Svenskt Tenn when he moved to Stockhom in 2011 to open his second studio. He describes the new Fusa series as a bridge between Stockholm and Murano. The collection was created with inspiration from Josef Frank’s Terrazzo textile print.
The exhibition is on now until 31st of March 2019 in the store on Strandvägen 5 in Stockholm. A must-see!
