While all of the objects all have a personally-significant story in Nickolas’ living space, it’s the customised Prometheus IV table lamp by Christopher Boots that’s particularly special. Nickolas commissioned the lamp for his 30th birthday, approaching Christopher with his idea, to put his own spin on one of his existing pieces. A long-standing fan of Christopher’s work, Nickolas says it was a special moment when he unwrapped the muslin cloth for the first time. “I often stare the lamp, captivated by the beautiful light that it creates; it’s almost hypnotic,” he says.
A notable art piece in the living space is the silver-gelatin print by Herb Ritts that Nickolas picked up in New York a few years ago. “I love the dark glamour of the photograph,” he avows.
