NIGIRI is Designed to Be Both Modern and Portable

Functional, modular and minimalist are the three musketeers of adjectives that best describe NIGIRI. NIGIRI is a compact furniture set designed by Elio Di Carlo. The set is made up of a small triangular lounge chair, a miniature coffee table and a square blanket/carpet.

The entire set can be wrapped up into a bundle and transported as easily as a small cooler. NIGIRI's compact size and minimalist, yet attractive style are a winning combination. Di Carlo's design would be perfect for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park. The design would be especially great for those who live in the city and don't have access to a car. It's a well-known fact that carrying beach furniture on the subway/bus is a pain, to say the least. Stats for Functionally Minimalist Furniture Sets Trending: Older & Average
