Niccolo’ Spirito (Milan, 1980) lives and works in Milan.
He grew up in Liguria, where he learned the techniques of fiberglass thanks to his experience in the shipyards of Genova, and early on began to fabricate surfboards. In 2010 he presented his first solo show with nsdesign: “Poligonale 30-32”, a collection of unique pieces made with wrenches and PVC tubes. The following year he presented his second collection made entirely with PVC tubes.
In 2015, he exhibited an XXL example of one of these pieces at the historical venue of the Società Arti e Mestieri in the Milanese neighborhood of the 5Vie. The project was mentioned in Wallpaper as one of the “100 shows not to miss” during the Fuorisalone that year.
At the art fair MIART in 2018, in collaboration with Galleria Rossella Colombari, Spirito presented OVETTO N.3: a transformation of a cable car from the 1950’s into a contemporary installation dedicated to the infamous Italian architect Carlo Mollino.
During Milan Design Week 2019, on the occasion of Design Pride organized by Seletti, he showcased an original bus from the 1970’s transformed into a Club Seventies on wheels. Inspired from the name of the infamous Studio54 club in NY and Radical Design, he re-elaborated the entire vehicle interiors with a personal twist.
His work is positioned between the borders of art, design, and superior craftsmanship and stands out for its excellence in manual skills and projectuality, along with conceptual originality.
Spirito’s production is made by unique pieces and limited editions. His works are present in international private and public collections.
Limited editions and selected pieces are presented in collaboration with Galleria Bellucci in Milan and toiletpapermagazine.
