About NJ interiors : The NJ interior project started in 2014.  Two young artists and longtime friends from Italy’s South Tyrol, Jacopo Candotti (sculptor) and Nicole Valenti (designer), decided to begin a new adventure together in a small home workshop located in the heart of Florence. We call our creations“functional sculpture” this year we present a collection of door handles, knobs and furniture. Our items are characterised by the fusion of sculpture and functionality. In our collection, these two elements come together to create unique objects, which are entirely handmade by the best Italian craftsmen. The NJ project is a journey through the universe of forms and materials, in which inspiration gives birth to high-quality and original objects: a tropical bird, the texture of a rock, the shape of an unusual branch become door handles through the sculptural medium. NJ Studio wants to create signature spaces and atmospheres in which sculpture and decor are in close relation with architecture and contemporary interior design. Our art lab does not only create design objects, it also provides personalized advice and interior design services.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I always thought that design and art were two separate worlds.
The first existed to solve practical problems while the second, characterized by pleasant uselessness, churns out questions about the world.
