Nigro designs for a range of different manufacturers and has a passion for overlap, accumulate and cross shapes that he manipulates into surprising yet discreet details in his work.
Philippe Nigro works between France and Italy.
Characterized by a connection between prospective research and pragmatic appreciation of the "savoir-faire" of the manufacturers with whom he works, Philippe moves between projects of different scale, whether it is well-know brands, the luxury industry or local craftsmanship.
Over the years these experiences, enriched by a mixture of Franco-Italian culture, have allowed him to come into contact with all different aspects of design.
Some of his projects are in collections at the Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris including Twin-Chairs, T.U. and Confluence.
In 2014 he was awarded Designer of the Year for the French furniture fair Maison & Objet and also created the exhibition design of the 7th edition of Milano's Triennale Design Museum, "Italian Design beyond the Crisis."
In 2015 he has been working on the scenography for Lexus, the Japanese automobile company, for the Milano Furniture Fair.
