Michele de Lucchi
Born in Ferrara, Michele de Lucchi studied in Padua and in Florence, Italy, where he graduated in architecture in 1975. After completing his studies architecture, his friendship with Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini took him to Milan at the end of the Seventies, where he became one of the main activists in the provocative designer group Memphis. His approach to the creation of new styles in design helped to play an important role in the Memphis movement, but by the late 1980's, de Lucchi had moved on to more traditional designs. After working with Artemide to develop some of their lasting bestsellers, de Lucchi created his Produzione Privata label, which creates small series of his designs featuring exquisite craftsmanship.See other lights/products from Michele de Lucchi
After the criticisms and confirmations, the exaltation of design and the conclusion of Memphis, Michele De Lucchi founded Produzione Privata, taking up the urge for change that was in the air at the turn of the 90's.
Aware of the gap that had been created between design and production, he set out to rediscover the role of the architect as an intellectual who conceives and fulfills his projects with a more responsible approach to the quality and beauty of things.
What had started as a small-scale craft-oriented production of experimental projects traced by his pencil very soon proved to be an opportunity to make objects using technologies on the margins of industrial production, but treated within the logic of series.

The transparent glass is beautiful and striking. The metal work is smooth and simple yet bold all at the same time. This fixture has delightful character.
