Born in Venice in 1976, Nichetto started his career at Murano-based glass maker Salviati, before moving on to work for lighting company Foscarini.
In 2006, he founded Nichetto Studio, before moving to Stockholm five years later, where he is now based.
Nichetto discussed his Canal Chair – the designer's first product for Moooi – which was unveiled during Milan Design Week last year. The form and bright colours of the chair evoke the bows of traditional Venetian boats.
The event was part of an ongoing collaboration between Dezeen and Moooi called Design Dreams, exploring how successful designers turned their dreams into reality.
Nichetto is the third designer to feature in the series, after Arihiro Miyake revealed the story behind his Coppelia light for Moooi in our talk during London Design Festival and Rick Tegelaar spoke about his Meshmatics Chandelier at Moooi's showroom in Amsterdam.
