Billie Civello — 'Cassini Chair', 2023
The Cassini Chair reflects notions of modernist design, where everyday sub-urban objects have been repurposed into functional forms. A bike rack reimagined, adorned by hand-linked chainmail using roughly 5300 rings.
Its Nice Inside is a Naarm (Melbourne) based Design studio that combines architecture, materials, and construction techniques to create contemporary and relevant furniture and interiors. Influenced by modernist principles and brutalist form, Its Nice Inside sits on the nexus of art and design. The studio's methodology centers around reevaluating and transforming materials, aiming to revalue commonplace objects, often sourcing and utilizing offcuts and waste stock from industrial fabricators.
With an intent to step away from mass production, Its Nice Inside creates a space for custom-made interior objects. We take on projects that range from commissions to self-initiated ideas that extend across furniture and interiors.
