The Bodega Collection

View all 10 Photos

A furniture collection inspired by chiaroscuro and dramatic visuals created by shadows and light.

Established by designer Joel Escalona in Mexico City, NONO makes striking furniture with creative designs that boldly stand out in interiors. The brand’s ranges often feature sculptural elements and artistic concepts. The new Bodega Collection is no exception. Inspired by chiaroscuro, an art technique used by the renowned Italian painter Caravaggio, the line features strong contrasts that create a dramatic effect. The technique of using extreme variations between light and darkness become so popular at the time, that many artists began painting their work in cellar workshops and studios with controlled light sources. Hence, NONO’s decision to choose the name Bodega for their latest collection.

Comprising a dresser, credenza, and cabinet, the Bodega Collection features overlapping forms in contrasting hues. The play between lighter and darker colors creates a sense of three-dimensional layers and thus gives more depth to the designs. The use of monochromatic palettes enhances the elegance of the furniture further.

Made from wood, the collection also features thin sheets of wood. Applied one over the other, they come together in a dynamic composition reminiscent of a slow movement. The cabinet, credenza, and dresser come in Natural wood or in Grayscale wood versions. Both color options feature stylish golden legs. Thanks to their eye-catching design and strong character, the pieces look fantastic in minimalist interiors. They easily create focal points in any living space, whether in a living room, bedroom, or home office. Photographs© Joel Escalona.
