STUDIO LE NID
Studio Le Nid was set up in the Sixties as a craft workshop, on the slopes of Mount Etna, by Mr Barbaro Messina, a versatile and talented master ceramist, to realize handcraft “majolica”.
Now it is a prestigious company that exports all over the world, luxurious, fine and refined “majolica” without forgetting the Company’s original purpose: creative, artisan, “handmade” pieces and artistic designs with the pursuit of beauty in every detail.
Studio Le Nid tiles are the result of skilful and passionate hands that translate the images of a beautiful land, where the black lava of Etna is accompanied with the scent of green citrus groves, in artistic production.
Sicily is a land full of contrast. Its generous nature, and its prestigious artisan tradition became the starting point for Studio Le Nid to mix tradition, innovation, research and experimentation so that the artistic tiles are the result of a contemporary classicism. They transform into unique pieces, specimens of a culture and a lifestyle, the Sicilian one.
The Master and Studio Le Nid work together with architects and designers of international fame to design and produce tiles (just remember the collaboration with Ettore Sottsass). Studio Le Nid is always involved in trying out technical and aesthetic solutions for design and for the chromatic effects to satisfy the good taste of demanding clients who appreciate beautiful, high quality production, and the originality of each unique handmade piece.
Since 2001 Studio Le Nid has been directed by Vincenzo, Filippo and Rita Messina, Mr. Barbaro Messina’ sons, who carry forward the mission of the company, renewing its image and making it a real example of Made in Sicily to export to the world.
