“Working with a typically industrial material, which has its own innate elegance, I designed a seat taking inspiration from the creation of some of the great engineering works: In fact, Shade is a micro architecture of steel tubes and wire that have been welded together to create a graphical and optical woven effect.” Philippe Nigro
Philippe Nigro has designed a family of metal seats for Et al.. Shade was created using the welded steel wire technique which gives the entire project a clean and minimal silhouette as well as an original graphic pattern that characterizes the seat and backrest and changes depending on the viewing angle. The harmony of the solids and voids also gives it a really light feel, which naturally transmits to the surrounding environment.
Design by Philippe Nigro
Philippe Nigro is a French designer who was born in Nice. He studied Decorative Arts and Product Design (L.De Vinci, Antibes - La Martinière, Lyon - Boulle, París).
Independent designer since 1999, he started his career alongside Michele De Lucchi with whom he participated in many product, furniture, lighting, interior design, event and set design projects. Philippe Nigro’s work is characterized by the connection between an experimental research approach and the pragmatic analysis of the “know how” of the clients he collaborates with. Over the years these experiences, enriched by the mix of his French and Italian culture together with various design challenges he faced, have granted him the awareness to move from one kind and level of work to another, collaborating with a diversified set of companies in terms of dimension, prestige and focus, allowing him to investigate the heterogeneous aspects related to design.
Since 2005 he has been developing experimental projects which have been supported by the French VIA (Valorisation de l’innovation dans l’ameublement - Valorisation for Innovation in Furniture).
In 2014 he was honored with the Designer of the Year award at the Maison&Objet exhibition. He is also active in the field of set design for exhibitions, to cite a few: he worked in the 7th edition of the Triennale Design Museum “Italian Design beyond the crisis”, and came out in 2015 with the new concept for the stands of the cars company brand Lexus for the upcoming worldwide motor shows. In 2016-17 he organized the installation Ultralin, Paris Place des Vosges and Sololino in Milan for The European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC).
