“I am informed by the work that
has preceded me and aim to add a building block in the continually changing
landscape of product and process,” says Jonathan Nesci
the designer known for his clean, minimalist furniture. As such, it’s only
fitting that he’s designed the booth
for Casati Gallery
at Design Miami/, a presentation
called “Reflections on Post-War Italian Design” that brings together big names
in mid-century Italian design—like Gino Sarfatti
—with works by a new generation of
designers inheriting their lineage, Nesci included.
Chicago-based Casati is one of
the biggest American dealers of 20th-century Italian art, and Nesci’s booth
serves a fitting tribute to their specialty. He offered us a peek behind the
scenes of the exhibition’s install, as his design is realized and each work
finds its rightful, carefully curated place.
