When he was just 16 years old Luigi Prina entered and won a national aircraft modeling competition. When he went to collect the prize money the organizers asked the boy why his father couldn’t come and collect it himself. Nearly fifty years later the now successful architect met a painter and boat builder named Eugenio Tomiolo and while they were talking made a bet that perhaps Prina could take one of his small model ships and make it fly like an airplane. Tomolio accepted and it wasn’t long before a small flying boat was whirring in circles around his small studio that coincidentally had clouds painted on the ceiling. A new passion was born and Prina has since dedicated nearly 20 years of his later life to building flying model boats, bicycles and other unconventional aircraft.

Nicholas is a London-based designer, and recent Royal College of Art graduate. His studio New Furniture For You creates functional products for the market; intended for a parallel, hyper-real consumer space. A highly-referential world where reproductions and iterations of classic typologies and archetypes are removed from their source material; rendering a new set of aesthetic values, that are arguably a much closer representation of our ‘desires’. These examples reveal truths, inconsistencies and functional rationalities about modern consumer tastes and culture. Drawing from (post)internet, DIY and corporate culture his work often employs a forceful intersection between cheaply produced ready-mades and components with a polished design sensibility.
So far Nicholas has been showing work at the V&A and Christie’s in London, at Milan, London and Stockholm Design Week and been featured in Wallpaper and Icon Magazine as the world’s best graduate talent. via blazediaries
