Product description

Born from the collaboration between Plato Design and the designer Pellegrino Cucciniello, Nino investigates, with a touch of irony, how language and imagery can overturn the perception of a kitsch icon, the garden gnome, giving it a new and well-deserved dignity.
The union of low-poly imagery and Italian hand-worked monochromatic cement was the key to restoring dignity to this object. His refined materials, calibrated geometric abstraction and imperceptible optical corrections make each Nino unique and highly desirable.

Concept

Garden gnomes: love them or hate them, there is no middle ground. And Plato Design just loves garden gnomes.
The union of designer Pellegrino Cucciniello’s low-poly imagery and Italian hand-worked monochromatic cement was the key to restoring dignity to the garden gnome.
The gnome can finally come inside and make its way to the lounge, the living room, the drawing room.
Nino, thanks to his refined materials and details, earns his rightful place with dignity, next to the great classics: picture frames and ornaments perched on bookcases. His calibrated geometric abstraction and imperceptible optical corrections make each Nino unique and highly desirable.
Wishing to own a garden gnome is no longer a taboo.
