In the 1990s, after beeing part of the famous Memphis group, the Italian architect Michele De Lucchi founded Produzione Privata – a manufacturing studio with the focus on high-quality craftsmanship and therefore production of a limited number of pieces.
Over the years, Produzione Privata has developed into a group of Workshops scattered across Italy, where skilled crafts are still pursued.
The ceiling and pendant light ‘Canova’ designed by Michele De Lucchi and Philippe Nigro demonstrates the company’s philosophy.
Out of a block of opaque, compact, cut and polished Carrara marble came a hollow cylinder to house the bulb. Light is emitted decisively from its aperture. Filtered by the marble, it leaves glimpses of beautiful veinings.
