Designed by Matteo Nunziati for Bonaldo, the Nelson collection, with which the Venetian company offers an entire range of products for the bedroom, including a bed, bedside table, vanity table, home office, and bench that create an environment imbued with new Bonaldo design inspirations.
For its inclusive design, the Nelson Collection has been recently awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Matteo Nunziati studied the work of American designer George Nelson as a starting point, hence, simple aesthetics for a collection based on maximum functionality.
The lines of the Nelson collection are essential, with balanced shapes and proportions.
Each element transmits, albeit with rigorous and contemporary language, extreme care in its manufacturing, and a careful selection of materials such as wood, metal elements, and fabrics.
The key element of the Nelson Collection is the bed whose hallmark features are the clean lines, precise analysis of the shapes and proportions, and the meticulous care taken over the details.
The dramatic and imposing wood headboard which surrounds and frames a smaller, softer, padded headboard is the stand-out feature.
The flat, slimline bed base, also made of wood, rests on slender metal feet: elements that give the Nelson bed the impression of being “suspended” as if it is floating in the bedroom.
In the Nelson L version, the headboard is larger and the bedside tables are incorporated into the bed creating a balanced and elegant result.
The range is completed by the bench with a wood frame and soft fabric cover: an elegant, sophisticated, yet functional element.
The Nelson bedside table features detailed attention to craftsmanship with a careful selection of materials and a contemporary feel.
The long, slimline metal base supports the wooden drawer, characterized by clean, simple lines.
A functional and spacious element with a simple design and warm wood tones that fit seamlessly into different settings.
The vanity table in the Nelson collection is a functional accessory piece featuring simple, clean lines.
The rectangular mirror and lacquered wood drawers complete the look, making it practical and suitable for everyday use.
The Nelson home office desk is characterized by the extreme care taken over the craftsmanship and careful selection of materials, such as the wood top and metal base.
The minimalist shapes are inspired by the Modernist Movement which influenced the architecture and design of the period spanning the two World Wars.
Simple but functional, the Nelson home office desk adapts seamlessly to all rooms in the home, becoming a faithful “ally” whatever the need.
