In the nearly three years since its launch, the lifestyle label Nicobar has quickly become synonymous with a travel and leisure oriented ethos, epitomised in products ranging from apparel and accessories to home decor and soft furnishings. Laidback, playful, yet incorporating defining elements from the modern Indian way of life, their distinct aesthetic has found a quick following. Now to add to their ever-growing popularity is their latest collaboration with Masterchef Australia’s Gary Mehigan.
The Gary Mehigan x Nicobar line, also in collaboration with Gary’s wife Mandy Mehigan, and Motherland, primarily (and as expected) consists of kitchen and tableware, inspired by India and Australia. The Indian Ocean plays a vital role in its design – you’ll find a dominance blue, and wave-like patterns on the crockery – as do tribal art motifs from both the countries. On offer are spice boxes, dinner and quarter plates, brass lassi makers /cocktail shakers, modern bakeware that also doubles up as serveware, cast-iron cookware, and a variety of accessories with organic accents.
“When I’m at home, I love to cook, and together with Mandy, we also love to entertain our friends,” says Gary Mehigan. “Mandy has created a beautiful atmosphere in our home with different design elements, mixing contemporary and traditional. Those refined and sophisticated influences shine through in our first lifestyle collaboration for Nicobar, which also draws inspiration from Indian home cooking.”
