Luca Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976 and set up his own studio at Porto Marghera in 2006, focusing on industrial design and design consultancy. But his career had begun in 1999, with his first designs of Murano glassware for Salviati. In the same year he started to work with Foscarini, as product designer and adviser in the field of research into new materials and product development. Today Nichetto collaborates with a wide range of companies in Italy and abroad. Recently he was guest of honor at IMM Cologne, where he was asked to come up with his own vision of a perfect house for the project Das Haus – Interiors on Stage, 2013. In 2013 Milan Design Week saw him once again involved in collaborations with leading Italian and foreign companies operating in the field of design: Cassina, De Padova, Foscarini, Casamania, Nodus and MGLAB.
