Nina Ballay is a French material and graphic designer. She graduated in 2016 from the ENSAD in Paris with a major in textile and material design. She has always favored a multidisciplinary approach in design. After her studies, she joined Patricia Urquiola design studio in Milan where she put into practice her material and graphic design approach inventing her profession. Her personal work is a little figurative, playing with contrast, always trying to out-scale or change the context of everyday life objects and styles. She likes to mix and play with the context of things, colours and materials. “Tapes” bedding is inspired by a simple object of our everyday life. The composition is both abstract and figurative because the colourful elements of the composition are in fact tiny pieces of overlaid tapes. «I have drawn with tape like I would do with any simple shape to create an abstract composition. Let’s sleep in an abstract landscape from our everyday life!» -Nina Ballay.
