Michele De Lucchi
The Michele De Lucchi Story
Michele De Lucchi is something of a design rebel. A prominent figure in radical/anti-design movements like Cavart, Alchimia and Memphis in the 1970s and 1980s, De Lucchi worked alongside another rebel, Ettore Sottsass. Sottsass became a kind of mentor, encouraging De Lucchi to experiment with color, materials and unexplored themes. During this period, De Lucchi created his most popular product to date, the Tolomeo task lamp for Artemide.
