Francesco Lucchese

Francesco Lucchese was born near Messina in 1960 and he took his degree in Architecture in March 1985 at the Milan’s Politecnico University. He won, in June of the same year, the first prize for the project of a folding chair, called Traslazione, that was presented at the international competition “Collective Spaces” by ADI (Industrial Design Association). His design activity is fixed around light and colours; his particular interest tends towards the power of light that can always transmit something to people and the expressive strength of colours. Now he is a professor at Industrial Design faculty at Milan’s Politecnico. In 1992 he began his collaboration with Venini, for which he designed objects and lamps.
