Nika Zupanc is known for pouring her own personal brand of poetic disruption into the world of design and interiors. Her creations usually appear as precious one-off pieces, design editions that bring inspiring reports from the outer frontiers of technology, materials and possibility. Nika Zupanc has now joined a select handful of illustrious designers to represent Stefano Giovannoni’s mission to create emotionally charged objects accessible to wider audiences everywhere, giving voice to the things that cannot be told. A romantic, democratic and unconventional adventure the design world most definitely needs.
Alongside the new daisy-shaped lamp four of Nika’s existing designs have gone in for a stripping down back to basics, for a consummate production-driven plastic makeover. The X chair, now in a straight black injection-molded construction, boasts a host of seat and back fully customizable configurations. The Scarlet Table again turns things on their lovely heads, all shiny, smooth and a just a little diabolical.
Ribbon chair, a one-off design for Dior back in 2013 returns all wrapped up in three lustrous shades. And Black Cherry lamp, originally fashioned from glass and brass is now also ripe for picking in a new, smaller high-gloss pop incarnation.
