Nita is a collection of jewelry and home designs that blurs industrial design and fine art. Discarding disciplinary bounds, it applies a process-driven approach to a subtly subversive range of informal yet elegant, simple yet culturally nuanced objects that transmit a palpable zeitgeist.
This process begins with a visual art theory that balances primary shapes — squares, rectangles, circles, ellipses and triangles — with pure materials that convey a considered purpose, emotion and idea. Paired to complement and contrast, these foundational elements create an uncommon harmony and explore a design’s individual character and mutable potential.
The resulting objects assimilate the patterns, techniques and nuances that surround us, particularly within the urban and industrial settings upon which our society is built, with an acute awareness of the importance of an efficient and responsible use of materials, processes and local production.
Based in Milan, Italy, Nita was founded by Nicolo Taliani, who unites his European heritage with an ongoing exploration of sculpture and fine art, establishing a unique design language that synthesizes myriad inspirations. From architects Renzo Piano and Le Corbusier to artists Constantin Brancusi, Lucio Fontana and Isamu Noguchi to post-modernism and futurism movements, and beyond, this wellspring combines to inform declarative objects, including jewelry, lighting, furniture and sculpture.
