Sancal Mind The Gap
MIND THE GAP
MIND THE GAP - RUG
Designed By Luca Nichetto
The Soft rattle of a trip on the underground is interrupted by the PA system when arriving at Turati station.
This Famous announcement lends its name to one of four new products from the creative collaboration between Nichetto Studio and Sancal, inspired by Milan’s Turati station. The manufacturing process can create very precise designs and generate different heights, adding an extra dimension.
The First incursion of the firm into this product category, Mind the Gap fills an empty space in Sancal’s catalogue, a natural accessory for the brand’s upholstery and occasional furniture.
For this project Sancal has counted on the experience and the delicate know-how of one of Spain’s oldest looms. Made of 100% pure virgin wool by the expert hands of a select team of artisans who use the tufting technique, Mind the Gap rugs are inspired by the geometry and colours of Turati’s platform.
Luca Nichetto is one of the most renowned international designers. Although he started his career in 1999 working for acclaimed brands like Foscarini, in 2006 he founded his own multidisciplinary design studio in Venice.
His personal take on design is influenced by both cultures; Scandinavian and Italian, being joined by a deep knowledge of craftmanship and industrial processes. Sancal asked him to take inspiration from the Turati metro station in Milan to create a complete set of products. The end result successfully combines form and function in his first collaboration with the marque. In 2011, Nichetto opened a second studio in Stockholm, Sweden.
