nino candle lantern by lucia bruni

nino by lucia bruni

nino is a recycled and recyclable candle lantern, perfect for both interior and exterior settings. made from a single italian ‘prosecco’ bottle, it creates a warm, cosy light to complement a range of experiences. nino’s portability allows them to share and create special moments anywhere – whether they’re on your restaurant, café or dining table, accompanying you to a romantic picnic or next to your bed.

functionality and versatility define nino. the candles are protected from the wind and some restaurants may even choose to double them up as table numbers (lucirmás can customise the bottles – just get in touch).

why choose unsustainable solutions when nino shows that green design can be stylish and beautiful?

‘nino’ by lucia bruni, will be premiering at superstudio piú in the ‘discovering’ section (via tortona, 27) during at milan design week 2012.
