About Design by nico
Owner and creative director Nicolette de Waart comes from the Netherlands, drawing inspiration from the countries where she has lived and visited, including Singapore and the UK, where she is based and her products are hand-made by craftsmen. Her previous furniture includes her metal bookshelves, Corian Solid Oak desk and daybed. Her Leaf Seat poufs have been used for numerous leading companies like GOOGLE Head office in Dublin, Accor Hotel group and MR Architecture in New York and the stool is featured in Missoni showroom London. She recently launched her Poppy Bloom Stools and Outdoor Leaf Seats.
She is constantly invigorated by the colours, materials, sights of places she visits around the world – particularly Asia – and loves to try out different materials and techniques in her work. Her pieces are functional and tactile, and respond flexibility to the needs of modern dwelling spaces.
“My aim is to create products that are functional and beautiful."
