The Candy Box for Nilufar

The Candy Box for Nilufar

Previewed at Milan Design Week 2022, The Candy Box is the new, colourful capsule collection by Draga & Aurel for Nilufar Gallery. Loosely inspired by the world of candy and a joyful imagery, it is composed of three pieces made entirely of cast resin, a play of shades, lights and transparencies that will delight the greediest palates and the discerning eyes of beauty lovers.

“Having Nina visit our atelier in Como seemed like an extraordinary thing: we were very excited and curious. She moved around following her internal guide, stopping at specific objects and coloured samples. She started playing with the existing resin forms, mixing them, removing the bases, stacking the tops of the tables. We immediately felt free to play with her and a strong creative complicity: we had fun assembling and disassembling the samples, leading to new intuitions. This is how the new Candy Box collection was born, from this visit, without us even realising it”.

BON BON, modular coffee tables
Funny, sweet, delicious like small candy bon bons. Composed by three modular parts, entirely made of resin, the coffee tables stimulate the imagination by playing with transparency and colours.

PY, night table
All of Draga & Aurel's mastery in handling resin is embodied in these night tables whose decomposed, three-dimensional and geometrical effect is given by the combination of colours and shades.

CARAMEL, suspension lamp
Made up of a juxtaposition of three resin plates blending different nuances and complementary palettes, those lamps transmit a sense of joy and lightness, like delicious candy bars.

The entire production is handmade in Draga & Aurel’s atelier in Como and each piece is unique. Cast resin is blended with colours to create different shades and then poured into molds specifically realized for those products to create the final shape.

The collection is on view at:
