The studio

N-WORKSHOP designs, directs and executes interiors and environments from concept through to creation. Offering a full creative direction and design service, our projects range from the two-dimensional page to the three-dimensional space, and from the conceptual to the real.

Under the direction Italian designer, Nino Comba, the studio collaborates with clients who seek alternative ways of developing their brand or their space.
