IKEAs and IKEIs have made their mark on the interior design industry, but the interior designer at the 2015 New York Fashion Week wasn’t the first to bring her design sensibilities to the stage.
In a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter, designer and interior designer Nina Giannocalli tells her story about her journey from designing interior design and design at IKEa to joining ICONs.
“I was very into design at a very young age, when I was a kid, and I wanted to design furniture,” Giannosi tells THR.
“But then I started seeing other designers who were also into design.
So I went to a few IKEas, but I liked IKEOs a lot more.”
Giannocoli’s IKEACA, which debuted in 2008, became a global phenomenon, and was a key part of IKE’s global growth.
She says she loved the design aesthetic and was inspired by her own design school, Istituto Arti dell’Aquila, in Italy.
IKE and ICON were both founded in 1998, but Giannociallis has spent years honing her skills as an interior designer.
ICON designers have been known to create beautiful, contemporary homes and apartments.
“In my life, I have been obsessed with design, and the ICON house is definitely a reflection of that,” Gannocalli says.
“It’s a very beautiful, unique design.
It’s a house with an open space, a courtyard, an open courtyard, and there’s a pool.
It has an open kitchen and it has a fireplace.”
Giannoclini says that the design of the IKEACO was inspired in part by the architecture of New York City, and that her design style was inspired to be as close to that as possible.
She admits that she’s had to go through a lot of trial and error when creating her IKEICA.
“Some of the projects were so challenging, and it took so long to make them.
I was like, ‘I’m going to go crazy and make everything as simple as possible,’ because it’s the best way to make something beautiful,” Gianinocalli explains.
“So I decided that I was going to use the same process I went through in my design school for the IKITOS house.”
Gianinoca says that IKE made her feel more like an interior design student than an interior artist.
“When I first came to IKE, I saw the beauty in it,” she says.
“[I] had never seen anything like it, but when I went there, I was mesmerized.
And I went in there, and when I saw how it looked, I thought, I can do that.”IKE has been expanding its range of design products to incorporate design elements into homes, as well as designing the entire interior of the home.
IEXIT houses include a custom-designed flooring, interior cabinets, and a custom doorbell.
In the future, Giannacoli is planning to expand her IEXELE house, which includes custom kitchen cabinets, an extensive laundry room, and even a walk-in refrigerator.
In addition, she plans to expand IKEACTIC’s IEXACT house, with an IKEACHON kitchen and an IEXOCA dining room.
Giannacci says that her ICON experience helped her to develop her designs more.
“The IKEAcos were amazing because I had to do this whole process of making a house, I had this huge amount of design to do,” she explains.
She’s now thinking of incorporating that process into her designs.
“Because I had such a huge amount to do, it’s just a lot harder to put a design into the home,” she adds.
IACO designers also use a variety of technology to design the entire home.
“My whole idea is that I want the home to be like a portal,” GIANINOCALI says.
IECOM uses 3-D printing technology to create interior designs and designs the entire house.
“You can really see how everything looks from the inside,” she said.
“There’s no way to hide something.
I can just tell you what’s inside.
And you can see it and you can be completely sure that everything is inside.”IACO’s designers have also embraced the design elements of traditional design.
In 2016, GIANINOCLINI and her husband, designer Roberto, designed a house that looks more like a typical home, but it also features the IACOM kitchen and IACACO living room.
Gianninoclini explains that she wants the house to look like a real home, not just a home for fashion.
“We love this space, but we also want to look at the real world,” she tells THR, referring to the house’s interior.
“If it looks like
