Design Luca Nichetto

Touch the sky with a finger: Galileo Galilei centuries ago dared to point the telescope upwards to measure the immensity of the sky, making revolutionary discoveries. The Sideris reading lamp is a tribute to Galileo's courage. The porcelain base, available in gold or platinum, supports a hand-blown Venetian crystal sphere preciously made with a double layer of gold or silver leaf. From the meeting of these unique elements a luminous revolution is born, a functional and decorative object that transforms a timeless gesture into a table lamp.

Luca Nichetto

Luca Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976, where his artistic talents were inspired by the famous Murano glassmaking industry, which employed members of his family. His career effectively started in his schooldays, where holidays were spent selling his designs to local factories, before he went on to study at the city’s Istituto Statale d’Arte and then take a degree in industrial design at the local Università Iuav di Venezia (IUAV), graduating in 1998. The following year, he joined the Murano-based glassmaker Salviati, later becoming a product designer and consultant for lighting company Foscarini. He took the leap to setting up his own practice in the city, Nichetto Studio, in 2006. Five years later came another major turn in his career, when he moved to Stockholm, Sweden, to start his family and opened a second studio there, combining his Italian flair with the Swedish spirit of modernity and sustainability. 

Over the years, Luca has served as art director for many international design brands and gained a reputation as a multidisciplinary designer. He has lectured and led workshops at several universities, including serving as a professor of design at the IUAV, and has sat on juries for various international design competitions. His work is often featured in prestigious exhibitions worldwide and has been the subject of retrospectives in cities including London, New York, and Beijing. His highly researched, innovative projects have earned him an impressive array of international awards for designs that range from products, accessories and furniture to architecture, exhibition design and branding.
