Michele De Lucchi

"Design is not just making beautiful buildings and objects, but investigating mankind's needs and ambitions"

Michele De Lucchi (1951) was born in Ferrara, Italy. After graduating in architecture in Florence, over the course of the 1980s he consolidated his working relationship with Olivetti, having begun in 1979 thanks to Ettore Sottsass, who had entrusted him with the design of the office furnishing systems for the Synthesis division. In the same period, he began designing lamps and furnishing elements for the most prominent Italian and European companies. Making use of a design approach—global and transversal—that treats architecture as an integrated system, he lends his skills to product design, furnishings and graphics. Production of Tolomeo, his table lamp for Artemide, began in 1987, resulting in his first Compasso d’Oro ADI award. He won a second Compasso d’Oro for his Artjet 10 printer for Olivetti. In recent years he has developed numerous architectural projects for public and private clients and has curated many important exhibitions. He designs objects and small furnishings under the name Produzione Privata, collaborating with various artisans for their manufacture.
