Born in 1975 in Nice, France, Philippe Nigro studied applied arts and product design at La Martinière School and École Boulle. Today, he works primarily in Italy and France.
An independent designer since 1999, he began and completed his pursuits alongside Michele De Lucchi, with whom he took part in many design projects for products, furniture, lighting, interior design, events, and scenography until 2012.
Since 2005, planned projects are supported by the VIA (Valorisation of Innovation in Furnishing), through which he receives backing for undertakings like the “Spiral” shelf, the “Storage-Unit” and the “Intersections” sofas, the latter renamed “Confluences” and produced by Ligne Roset (now part of the FNAC and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs collections).
In 2009, he designed the “Universal Base”, rechristened the “T.U.” (again by Ligne Roset) and the “Twin-Chairs” seats (both now in the Centre Pompidou collection).
He has since been designing for a variety of producers, such as De Castelli, for which he created the “Think Station” in 2010 as part of the INTERNI Think Tank exhibition.
