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

The fixture is great came on time

A Real Show piece
A real show piece as you walk into the room-- tastefully stands out providing a retro modern look with plenty of light.

beautiful over the counter lights
The Castore suspension lights worked out beautifully over my kitchen counter. My house does not have very high ceilings and more dramatic bigger lights would have not worked out. These are just the right size. The white globes illuminate the white counter perfectly.

Nice fixture, too big for my room
I bought the 10" pendant for each side of the bed in a guest bedroom. The pendant itself was sleek and contemporary, but too large for the space. The room was small and ceilings low. I have seen this in the Google office in Chicago, and they look good on high ceilings in a contemporary space, gives it a loft-like feel. I returned the items and chose to go with smaller surface fixtures.

Beautiful yet functional
Great product. Beautiful and clean look. Yet delivers terrific light. On a dimmer works best.

Design is modern and elegant but -- it looks better in multiples when used with the smaller size fixture. I think the larger sizes look better when used as a singular.
This is a beautiful piece and we loved it for our project. Too bad our client didn't like it as much.

This is such a nice product! Had to return because my client did not want in any more, but if I could, I would have kept it.
