Nanimarquina and Delica


Companies that work in the design sector include producers and designers of very different products, from lighting, flooring, furniture and textiles to, in our case, home products.

The products we design and sell fulfil different needs yet can be in many cases complementary. Design companies like ours are not only driven by a passion for design but also have a shared mission of bringing innovative products to contemporary homes.

We recently had the chance to collaborate with a market-leading design company called Nanimarquina. The unveiling of its latest collection named Quill, designed by Nao Tamura, featured several Delica products including Sacha and Delica trays as well as items from the Ameba collection.
