Design by Nico logo

Designer Nicolette de Waart comes from the Netherlands, drawing inspiration from the countries where she has lived and visited, including Singapore and the UK, where she is based and her products are hand-made by craftsmen. Her previous furniture includes her metal bookshelves, Corian Solid Oak desk and daybed. Her Multi-Awarded Leaf Seats have been used in numerous projects for leading companies like GOOGLE Head office in Dublin, Accor Hotel group and MR Architecture in New York and the pouf is featured in Missoni showroom London and she recently launched her Poppy Bloom Stools and Outdoor Leaf Seats.

Nicolette de Waart’s materials range from high-quality Kvadrat wool (for her Leaf Seats) to solid and durable elements such as metal, oak and Corian (which feature together in her Corian/Oak Writing Desk). She is committed to using sustainable materials in her work and is involved in every stage of the production process, ensuring that the end result always meets her exacting standards. She sources production for processes which includes traditional metal casting, joinery and sheet metal work. All products are handmade by highly qualified craftsmen.

“My aim is to create designs and products that are as hardwearing as they are beautiful to look at,” she says. “Above all, I want them to stand the test of time.”
