Michele De Lucchi & Giancarlo Fassina
Michele De Lucchi & Giancarlo Fassina

Born in Italy in 1961, Michele De Lucchi is best known for having designed the Tolomeo lamp for Artemide in 1987 in collaboration with Giancarlo Fassina. The lamp is now arguably Artemide’s most iconic fixture and a landmark of contemporary design. Having a background in architecture and industrial design, De Lucchi also favors a craftsman-like approach and since 1990 through the line “Produzione Privata,” he has created a series of artisan-produced items such as small sculptures carved with a power saw. Born in Milan in 1935, Italian architect Giancarlo Fassina was a leading figure in Italian avant-garde design beginning in the 1970’s. Through his work with the Radical “anti-design” movement he explored scale distortion, color and promoted the social relevance and humor of objects.
