Born from the collaboration between Plato Design and the designer Pellegrino Cucciniello, NINO investigates, with a touch of irony, how language and imagery can overturn the perception of a kitsch icon, the garden gnome, giving it a new and well-deserved dignity. The union of low-poly imagery and Italian hand-worked monochromatic cement was the key to restoring dignity to this object. His refined materials, calibrated geometric abstraction and imperceptible optical corrections make each Nino unique and highly desirable.
