Luca Nichetto


“I was looking for a project that was chameleonic, in all respects. Modular, with a dimension that can grow, ideally, infinitely. And, at the same time, I also wanted a simple, traditional two or three-seater sofa.

Unquestionably comfortable, soft. Equally suitable for business environments or our living rooms. And for all the places we inhabit today, where functions naturally overlap. A product that’s understood anywhere in the world: from Europe to the Far East. And finally, a piece constructed via a simple, yet clever manufacturing process.”

Padded means soft. Gentle, welcoming. Biggie has a gender, she’s feminine. This is apparent in the rationale of using a single mould, in the nearness of contrasting details, in the desire for an aesthetic that unites different cultures and ways of living. And in the shape of the bed: the gentle curve of the wooden structure, delicate, almost poetic.

“I was looking for a passepartout design. Not business nor residential. But rather, a composition that encompassed the formal details of both worlds.”

Luca Nichetto

Biggie is a collection consisting of an original composition that finds its rationale in one simple observation: tastes and habits are governed by geography.

“Southern Europe loves modular sofas. The Centre, the North and the Far East, especially further north, prefer configurations consisting of two or three seats. Luca Nichetto

The Biggie aesthetic works in both free-standing mode and in the modular version. It’s based on a versatile, repetitive framework. But which can be configured to create different forms: the sofa, the bed, an ample chaise longue. It’s all there: north and south. Rationality, softness. As the name suggests, Biggie is an extensive collection.
