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.”

all products \ Sofas \ Biggie

Biggie is a complete collection: from bed to lounge chair, from armchair to sofa. A system composed of formal details that encompasses all of life’s essential moments.

“A new collection encapsulates every aspect of the brand. Twils is looking to evolve in terms of furniture for the living area. But it’s in the sleeping areas that its strengths lie. Biggie includes both: I wanted to create a fil rouge that combines and capitalizes on all the company’s expertise and experience.
I considered the structure of both the bed and the sofa. If you reduce them to the bare minimum, they are not too dis similar. A rigid structure which contains a soft element. So, first of all, I designed a shell, a structure which offers different possibilities, different solutions”.
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.
