NB Milano designs covering surfaces and furniture that are inspired to a sense of aesthetics deeply in harmony with the intrinsic mutability of matter over time.
Two are the main lines of design:
3D Leather Surface is the collection of covering surfaces made of the most precious part of the leather, full grain leather, handmade by craftsmen with bas-relief motifs and available on okoume marine plywood. The collection is divided in Specular Modules which can be assembled in several different fashions and in Singular Modules in different dimensions, from the bigger (mm 1202 × mm 1700, made with one single piece of leather) to the smaller (mm 425 x mm 601). 3D Leather Surface is particularly suitable for the covering of surfaces and walls, woodwork, floors, doors and furniture.
Furniture Collection is composed of tables, cabinets, bookcases, stools, chairs and armchairs, handmade by craftsmen of a small number of Italian bottegas specialized in the processing of wood, metal and tapestry. The attention given to all phases of design and creation, together with the use of materials and finishes strictly natural, make every piece simply unique.
Through its love for arts and craftsmanship, NB Milano has as its mission to create timeless design, that is synonym of harmony, grace and uniqueness.
A careful and always curious research of the right materials represents the basis of our production. We only select natural raw materials that offer us the guarantee to display their best qualities throughout time. All materials are natural and are treated naturally, like the parts in wood that are finished with linseed oil, the full grain leathers that are handmade with bas-relief motifs and left in the natural color or treated with beeswax polish and then again the fabrics that smell of nature like jute, the handles in black and white horn, the metals like casting bronze or brass, satinized, oxidized and finished with beeswax.
Every choice in the selection of the raw materials aims to find matter at its best expressive potential with the intent to create sensual objects, organic and modifiable, that can engage all five senses in the most refined way. Objects that are like living entities, whose mutations are new chapters in the book of their existence.
Different tonalities of color, wash effects, cracks, small scratches or abrasions on the full grain leather, oxidations of the metallic parts, all of these are just some of the precious elements of this production which aims to stress the genuine and natural beauty of extraordinary materials.
Working in strict cooperation with the buyers, NB Milano develops the different options for its models: it is for example possible to substitute a place in brass with one in marble, or to choose among several types of wood, both exotic and European, available in veneered or solid wood.
It is possible to request variations in sizes, materials, colors and finishes. With the assistance of its artisans, NB Milano then evaluates the technical feasibility, the aesthetic results and the possible alternatives.
