Italy / North Macedonia
Daniel Nikolovski (1992) is a Macedonian- born interior and furniture designer, currently living and working in Milan, Italy. His work is narrative-driven and is characterised by the use of sculptural geometries, altering proportions, expressed through rich range of materials such as: steel, resin, tortoiseshell acetate, boldly-patterned woods and fabrics used in the fashion industry.
// Dragon Bench
The Dragon Bench is a part of a mini collection consisted of furniture pieces handcrafted entirely out of massive Black Walnut (Noce Canaletto), characterised by petite proportions - intended to fit in smaller urban apartments, while stylistically looking monumental.
The design consists of two contrasting geometries: one originating from internet images of baroque ornamentation and second originating from modern architectural pillar-like structures. These two visual worlds are unified by the use of solid walnut treated with oils keeping the natural dark essence of the carefully selected wooden piece.
// Dragon Shelf
Dragon Shelf is a shelf-unit that is entirely crafted from massive Black Walnut (Noce Canaletto). This object can be used as a display unit for collectibles or as a bookshelf.
Each horizontal surface has a unique design that is a result of distorted images of baroque ornamentation, while the V-shaped pillar-like vertical elements are referencing brutalist architectural pillars. These two visual worlds are unified by the use of solid walnut treated with natural oils keeping the dark and reddish essence of the selected wooden piece.
