Luca Nichetto - one of Italy’s most promising designers - was inspired by the architecture in the 1950s when he took on the task of producing a product for the OASIS project. In the 1950s, vegetation was an integral part of architecture. As Luca began the development work he put a number of flowers in flowerpots on flowerpot saucers of different sizes next to each other. Then he removed the flowers and the flowerpots but kept the flowerpot saucers on the floor. These flowerpot saucers of various sizes formed a sort of pattern which was then reworked by Luca resulting in the piece of green furniture that has been named Green Pads.
“When I saw the pattern formed by the flowerpot saucers, I thought of Monet’s paintings in Giverny, and I find it hard to imagine a better starting point when designing a product for the OASIS project, says Luca Nichetto.
By combining a number of Green Pads next to each other, a feeling of a single object of greenery is created.
