Because home is our spot in the world.
As has often been said, it is our universe, a real cosmos by all means.
An attentive look can perceive beauty even in the most humble residence.
Gaston Bachelard The poetics of space
I am not a designer and I do not want to be one, I only have one life. But everything is a source of inspiration to me, a sort of vice.
I love materials and everything that could take shape, maybe decontextualizing an idea or a technique. Changing the rules and mixing up the cards of the game I can give other responses and have other options. It may be risky, but it's just what an explorer would.
Even a rusty crooked spike has its own beauty. The fact that my "thoughts" are useful in daily life really satisfies me. The act of placing a glass on my artwork or even a cat climbing on it makes it complete and alive. So I would say that for me, facing my "non-design" is above all a mental and human experience.
A painter, a sculptor, a designer... but first of all an artist for Art. Nëri is a multifaceted person who loves to investigate on a broad spectrum. Attracted by shapes, colors and symbols, he transforms every impulse into research. His days are filled with brain work, everything becomes a source of continuous and incessant inspiration. Nëri exhibits the fruit of his creativity dedicated to design, towards which he has turned his attention since the eighties, without ever renouncing being an artist and indeed contaminating design with his art. "Everything is "form", no matter what look and angle you give, the world is full of objects where contamination is a continuum." Sculptures with a deconstructivist flair are transformed into elegant tables, with the Fusioni line simple ovoid shapes, corrugated cardboard sheets and river stones become home objects. An interesting egg, an aluminum fusion of a real egg cut longitudinally in half, containing a cavity that reminds the round shape of the yolk (where to place the real egg), becomes an original egg holder. Desk pads and wall coat racks, cutlery, lamps, tables and much more. Challenges such as whole artistic studies and interior designs have been accepted and won by Nëri with great originality and creative courage, thanks to his sensitivity to the shape and volumes coming from his experience as a sculptor and from the masterful use of color, always trying to balance aesthetics and practical use. The elements used by Nëri to create his objects are also the protagonists of his paintings and sculptures.
