Meeting Point is not only a place where anonymous passengers and their private stories converge. It is also a product created by Luca Nichetto for Sancal, part of a tribute to the Turati station in Milan.
Meeting Point is a pouf system which also integrates tables. It represents one of the four unique products created by the Italian master, each with a its own identity, while sharing a common inspiration and design language.
The circle is the dominant shape, representing the station’s hole-like windows that open onto galleries and platforms. Available with upholstered seat and is accompanied by round wooden or metal tables of different sizes and finishes.
The thin steel legs create an illusion of levitation, as if the seats and tables are suspended in mid-air. The seats can be upholstered in an endless array of fabrics, vinyl and leathers.
Luca Nichetto is one of the most renowned international designers. His career started in 1999 working for acclaimed brands like Foscarini, in 2006 he founded his own multidisciplinary design studio in Venice. In 2011, Nichetto opened a second studio in Stockholm, Sweden. His 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.
