NICCOLÒ POGGI FIRENZE
Niccolo’ Poggi is the grandson of Ugo Poggi, who founded the company Ugo Poggi in Florence in 1900 as a furniture factory. In 1922, Ugo Poggi opened a shop on Florence’s premier shopping street, Via Strozzi, producing and selling pottery, silverware, china, Murano glass, crystal and furnishings.
The good taste , the research, the care in choosing materials and the passion go on with his son and his grandson.
Niccolo’ Poggi is now an award-winning designer based in Florence. After graduating with a degree in architecture from The University of Florence, Niccolò started work as an architect and interior designer. While working as an architect, Niccolò was commissioned to design products for international brands, which inspired him to create and produce his own designs.
Niccolò gained international recognition for his exclusive, nature-inspired organic designs, winning an award in Japan for his design of a sculptural light which is permanently exhibited in the Museum Karasuma Oike in Kyoto.
Nature and organic forms are a constant source of inspiration in the design of the human environment and the relationship between nature and the various design disciplines is core to the works of Niccolò Poggi.
The “organic model” inspired by nature, with its forms, structures and organizing principles, not only inspires the widest range of concepts and designs, but can also be expressed across the broad spectrum of form and function.
The works of Niccolò Poggi refer to this organic model and Niccolò Poggi presents a selection of objects and projects from the field of design, architecture, landscape, art, photography and scientific research- works that do not simply depict or imitate organic forms but use them as a starting point and reservoir of inspiration for eclectic and innovative responses to the relationship between man and his environment.
