I’m Niccolo’,
Artist and
Boat Lover

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 2005 he moved back to Milan to follow his passion for art and cinema. In this period he realized the short film “Tipo 00” and the documentary “Vandart”.

In 2010 he presented his first solo show with nsdesign: “Poligonale 30-32”, a collection of furniture pieces, uniquepieces made with wrenches and PVC tubes, in collaboration with USAG and SIRCI. 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 atthe historical venue of the Società Arti e Mestieri in the Milanese neighborhood of the 5Vie. The project wasmentioned 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.

The designer’s 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. His work is present in present in private and public collections.
