Nix is a family of small tables in sheet steel painted in two colours, with tops in various finishes: sheet steel painted like the frames, ash or thick leather. Available in different shapes and sizes, they are designed to be used alone, in pairs or stacked, underlining their graphic nature. They stand out for the thinness of the tops and the hollow section of the uprights.
“Unlike other projects, which are individual pieces, the project Nix for B&B Italia was about a group of objects, a family of tables for the living room, in different shapes and sizes. They can be used alone, in pairs or fitted together.
They look like they were built out of sheets of paper distanced from each other by legs, also in folded paper: we wanted them thin and light to balance the more abundant forms of the sofas, but we also wanted them to be brilliant made of a single material. The essential element of the project is the design of the leg, with its soft curve that fits into the tops and occupies - in number and alternated position on the different tables - the possible spaces available to combine these tables. Gabriele and Oscar Buratti.

Gabriele & Oscar Buratti
Gabriele Buratti, architect and professor of Interior Design at the Faculty of Design of Politecnico di Milano (2003-2010), and Oscar Buratti, architect, form the architecture and design studio Buratti Architetti.
The studio is transversally involved in projects of different scales, from the architecture of buildings and urban areas to interiors of houses and commercial spaces, from the design of furniture and lighting to the exhibition and showroom design, in an intense and varied professional path, in which themes, places and typologies, brands and people, materials and workmanship, mingle together contaminating one another.
They design residential, commercial and industrial buildings, interventions in historic centers and renovations of complex buildings, villas and interiors of offices, dwellings, shops and showrooms, with the aim of combining culture and professional specialization, experimentation and technique, original vision and product quality. They have many collaborations with important brands in the field of furniture design as well as in the retail sector.
