His style is emblematic of the Terzani brand, which is known for combining artisan techniques and luxurious materials with experimental, cutting edge manufacturing processes. The results of this labor -intensive practice are unique, expressive designs. Nicolas often designs with the global market in mind, i looking for products or objects that can be improved or are missing from the industry. A graduate of the European Business School in Paris, Nicolas currently lives in Florence.
