Luca Meda, 1991

“I designed this sofa for the foyer of Genoa’s Carlo Felice theatre with Ignazio Gardella and Aldo Rossi in mind, i.e. both maestros and friends. I wanted to interpret the remote sense of their work and search for a relationship that has always been common to both of them, tradition and reason.” (Luca Meda).

Design Luca Meda, 1991

Luca Meda

Luca Meda wrote an important chapter in Italian enterprise history. He contributed to the design culture of the Molteni Group with great passion and dedication. He was an example of a perfect symbiosis between creativity, business, art and industry. This is something of a paradox for a designer who loves drawing and uses a pencil more than any other tool to describe and reinvent reality. Since the late 70's Luca Meda was dedicated to the design of ranges. He created furniture which became icons. With Aldo Rossi he created the Piroscafo bookshelf, the Zim chairs and the Ho armchair, the Vivette armchair, the Primafila sofa, the 505 programme and the Pass system.
