Michele De Lucchi was born in Ferrara, Italy in 1951 and graduated in architecture in Florence. In the years of radical and experimental architecture he was a major player in such movements as Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis. Michele designed lamps and furnishing items for the most renowned Italian and European companies and was in charge of design at Olivetti from 1988 to 2002. He developed experimental projects and conceived a number of personal theories on office development and designed and refurbished buildings in Japan for NTT, in Germany for Deutsche Bank and in Switzerland for Novartis. Michele has designed sets for art and design exhibitions as well as buildings and exhibiting layouts for many famous museums. His professional activity was always supported by personal studies on the themes of design and handicraft. Since 2004 he has been carving small houses in wood using a power saw in order to pursue the essential character of architectural forms.
