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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous - careful with your bulb choice I received this wall sconce quickly and the light was in excellent condition. Installation was easy, and the light looks beautiful outside. The one mistake I made (and it's all mine) was selecting the fluorescent option instead of incandescent. I should know better. I have to special order the bulbs, which I did. However, I ordered 18W and I think it's too bright now. Compared with my neighbors' homes, it looks like a flood light. Now I have to special order the same bulb in 13W. If I had to do it again, I would have just gotten incandescent. LOVE the fixture though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from check the box when it arrives! After waiting months for the fixture it arrived without the two screws needed which was discovered after the electrician was already here! As we were installing it outdoors it would have been good to have stainless screws included. A call to customer service resulted in being put in touch with Artemide who did apologize for their error. (They checked another box and verified the screws were supposed to be in the plastic bag with the plate.) Anyway it's a simple installation otherwise and the resulting fixture is simple and perfect at our '60's home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design, simple and to the point. We purchased these lights for our deck and outside wall. Our house is almost mid century so these were the perfect fit. We have a modern sense of design, but find that many lights/sconces are over designed. These were exactly what we were looking for. Classic. We bought three, two of the biggest size- which are on either side of our sliding door, they are huge, and somewhat absurd but we love them! And the third one is the middle size for above a smaller sliding door. They emit enough outdoor light without over powering. just simple good design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly HUGE! I had originally wanted to use this product as a wall sconce, but it was far too big for the intended space. I suppose I didn't account for how far the fixture would protrude from the wall. I hung it from the ceiling, instead, & I love it. I have a 10 ft. ceiling, & the fixture just floats off the ceiling and provides plenty of light. I'm going to order another for the bedroom area of my loft. I may wind up with 3 in a line across the cement ceiling. Arrived in perfect condition & extremely fast. Hooked it up to a dimmer. Easy installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outdoor lighting with very clean look. Over the last 3 years I have bought three of these for our house. The unit consists of a base which has threads. So the glass ball screws onto the threaded base, making it possible to mount the ball so no hardware is visible on the outside. Overall a very clean look. Cleaning and swapping out bulbs is as easy as unscrewing the ball. I now use the Phillips 17 Watt LED bulbs with these units. These are equivalent to 75W bulbs but the light is still quite good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Light I bought this light for my son's room and it is perfect for the space. His room is a combination of contemporary and tudor architectural elements and the light is a perfect compliment (and clearly on the contemporary side of things). Cheaper versions of this have the light base outside the globe. What makes this light worth the extra cost is that the light base goes inside the glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great indoor bathroom vanity light We love the light! This light works perfectly for us as a bathroom vanity light. Great look. The quality is excellent and when you consider that it is made in Italy it really seems like a reasonable price. Also, this was my first time purchasing a light from YLighting and I was very impressed with the entire transaction. The ordering and shipping was smooth and professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Magical Light This light looks magical in our contemporary remodel half bath. It's a small bathroom, the light was placed over a wall to wall mirrored medicine cabinet. We decided not to center the light in any direction, so it looks like a bubble that just landed on the wall. Just perfect. The light looks expensive, the construction is perfect, installation was a breeze.

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.

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.
