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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Nice simple ball, unobtrusive with excellent light source

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful We used this light above our stairs. It's easy to install, and it's also easy to take the globe off in the event you need to move tall furniture, etc. I put a dimmable LED bulb in mine, and when it's set to the lowest setting, it looks like the moon at night. Beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful, elegant light. I'm using it in a bathroom with a second Dioscuri fixture that is the next size up. Great pair. The glass globe is heavy, but the product comes with a great base that fully supports it. Love this light!

Hi, it says the Dioscuri 14 is only for dry locations. Does that include outdoor but on the ceiling of a small covered porch? We only have about 6.5 inches of clearance from outward swinging screen, so next size up won't fit. Thx

Asked by: lesleyb
You can certainly use the Dioscuri fixture for your porch. The design style makes it suitable for both outdoor as well as indoor locations, but because the 5.5" size is relatively small, it can be vulnerable to wind and rain more so than its larger counterparts. That said, if you do plan on using it in an outdoor, sheltered environment, that should offer the protection away from the elements that it needs. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a product specialist directly, feel free to give us a call at 866.842.6209 and we can further assist you.

hi. do you think this fixture will be sturdy for outside wall mount placement? I am looking to place it in a tropical climate and I'm a bit concerned that the glass could break in a heavy storm, but I am not certain. Please advise.  Many thanks, Michelle

Asked by: lovelace
Thanks for your interest in this design. This fixture is UL listed for wet locations, which means that it is forged with thick hand blown glass and sturdy metals that are built to last. While no fixture is indestructible when exposed to extreme weather conditions, the strong, water tight adhesives will prevent leakage and deterioration, even in heavy rain and gust. Only the Dioscuri 14 (5.5"D) is not rated for outdoor use. This is because of its small size, and the fact that the glass is thinner and more delicate than its larger counter parts. If such a small fixture was made with thick glass, it could end up looking a bit clunky. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.
