About the Designer

Michele De Lucchi & Giancarlo Fassina

Michele De Lucchi & Giancarlo Fassina Italy 

Born in Ferrara, Michele De Lucchi studied in Padova and in Firenze (Florence), Italy, where he graduated in architecture in 1975. His approach to the creation of new styles in design played an important role in the movements Cavart, Alchymia, and Memphis. Alchymia is a group of avant-garde industrial designers including Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi, and Ettore Sottsass to which Michel De Lucchi contributed with the creation of designs that where aimed to meet the need of a vast public while communicating a smooth and positive feel. Memphis is a famous movement initiated by the internationally acclaimed designer and architect Ettore Sottsass. Part of it are the designers George Sowden, Nathalie du Pasquier, and Matteo Thun. The movement focused on themes of fundamental importance in industrial design with which Ettore Sottsass has been constantly experimenting: the use of colors, the importance of considering unexplored themes, and the use of versatile materials like plastic laminates and others. As part of the Memphis movement Michele De Lucchi seems to excellently be able to adapt and harmonize expressionism, production methods, and new concepts of functionality. Michele De Lucchi created industrial design products for the famous design manufactures Artemide, Dada Cucine, Kartell, Matsushita, Mauser, Poltrona Frau and Olivetti. Among his most conceptually explorative projects are those developed for Compaq Computers, Philips, Siemens and Vitra. Many of his installations are used in the interior design of Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bundesbahn, Enel, Poste Italiane, Telecom Italia, Banca Popolare di Lodi and, other offices internationally. Michele De Lucchi's creative professional activity is based on the conceptual exploration of architecture, design, technology and crafts. He designs buildings, exhibitions, installations for indoor spaces, and industrial design products. Among the numerous design awards that he has received are: Compasso d'Oro, Premio Smau, Office Design Eimu, Deutsche Auswahl, If Hannover, Design Plus, Roter Punkt and other. Giancarlo Fassina was born in Milan, Italy. He obtained a degree in Architecture at the Politecnico University in Milan. He has worked on several projects involving Industrial Design and has created lighting for Artemide and other companies. He received a Compasso D'oro award for his Tolomeo Series of lamps which he designed together with Michelle de Lucchi.

About the Manufacturer

The Artemide light has never been solely a function of seeing, or an opportunity for formal experimentation with lamps as objects. For more than forty years, Artemide has aimed to propose light as a companion to people, as a source of physical pleasure and mental comfort. Artemide has done so, with different work groups, searching through the whole design process, starting with a declaration of values - The human light.

Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities. That is why Artemide's attention today is concentrated on the concept of the context of life, understood as a specific microenvironment in which an event occurs where one or more persons are the protagonist, every context of life can be associated with different light contexts, or the different atmospheres of light characterized by the activities that, at various moments of the day, have us as protagonists, starting from these contexts and the lighting conditions that characterize them, Artemide proposes products capable of meeting people's multiple needs and offering the light performance characteristics most suited to each moment of life, it is light that is flexible and adaptable, which produces the optimum visual precision, and consumes the minimum environmental resources, it is Artemide light.

The Artemide group, founded by Ernesto Gismondi in 1959, today operates throughout the world, with 16 subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and 35 exclusive distributors. They have production centers in Italy, France, Germany, the USA, Hungary and the Czech Republic. In a policy aimed at satisfying all lighting needs, the Artemide group has recently acquired companies that reinforce its position as a world leader and further diversifies the offerings. For contexts of life, Artemide offers not only lamps for moments of relaxation at home, but also large sophisticated installations for lighting public and private professional activities.

Technological and productive expertise is achieved through research and development centers, with the product planning and engineering section, laboratories for technical conformity and self-certification tests, and production units equipped with avant-garde processes. A production structure that can offer expertise in the processing of traditional materials such as glass, as well as the capacity for innovation with recently introduced materials such as titanium. Lighting performance characteristics extend from a light with atmosphere, variable, colored, to the most precise of lights for community environments. The vast range of options reflects the commitment of the whole organization to provide a product guaranteed by the Artemide brand, throughout the world, with an image that is strong and consistant - That of a leader in the lighting industry.

Rezek is a USA company of the Artemide group, with product development and manufacturing facilities in Culver City, California. Founded by designer Ron Rezek in 1978, the Rezek company has gained strong recognition and appreciation among the architectural and interior design community for the distinctly creative design and quality construction of its American made lighting products for residential and commercial applications.

I can't wait to get one of these for myself! A part broke on ours, so I've had to replace it but Artimede is usually pretty helpful finding replacement components.
