‘plinto’ by luca nichetto


industrial designer luca nichetto has created ‘plinto’ for skitsch, a hybrid object that functions either as a stool or as a small table. its form was based on the parallelepiped-shaped blocks of concrete frequently used on construction sites but also recalls, as its name explicitly indicates, the plinth that serves as a column’s base in greco-roman architecture.

aside from being stackable and usable both indoors and out, ‘plinto’ also has a built-in handle that allows it to be easily moved from one place to another.


‘plinto’ will be showcased at milan design week 2010.
