Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte has unveiled his latest project, a versatile and poetic object of furniture for contemporary dwellings. Inspired by the game of hide-and-seek, Nascondino is an alcove that is designed to offer a moment of reverie. The partial screen allows for intimacy, yet one’s feet remain visible to the outside world. Expressly intended to afford privacy and personal spaces in today’s open-plan interiors, the simple structure makes for an elegant accent any domestic space.

Following his successful presentations in Milan last year, the young Belgian design talent recently presented Nascondino at Salone Satellite in Milan.
