'Macrosterias' by Patricia Urquiola for Budri

‘Macrosterias’ by Patricia Urquiola for Budri is an installation which represents the metamorphic use of marbles and stones of different origins – a female essence in chemical composition and colours.
The project arose from the observation of vegetal micro-organisms – micrasterias – whose forms mixed with graphic symbols create a new digital-biological entity.

'Canova' by Produzione Privata

'Canova' by Produzione Privata

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.

Kaleidos by Michele De Lucchi and Sezgin Aksu for Caimi Brevetti

Kaleidos by Michele De Lucchi and Sezgin Aksu for Caimi Brevetti

Kaleidos is the result of a design idea from Michele De Lucchi and Sezgin Aksu, supported by the use of state-of-the-art moulding technologies and techniques now used by Italian manufacturer Caimi Brevetti, and used for the first time in the ‘seat universe’. The three- dimensional texture of Kaleidos smoothly wraps the whole seat without interrupting continuity: this characteristic quality is a technique of genius and is particularly beautiful at the rounded edges, which are completely finished along the whole perimeter. The transparent seats are characterised by three-dimensional reflections and transparencies that change discreetly according to light, shadows and point of observation. The white and black seats have a particularly smooth surface finish with silk or wool effect enhanced by the bending shape. The copolymer used to make the seat of Kaleidos has a high mechanical performance and a particular flexibility which is emphasised by the ergonomic wraparound shape of the seat.

The 4-legged frame can be easily stacked.

The 4-legged frame can be easily stacked.

The materials together with the design make this chair particularly comfortable. Kaleidos has pure lines, enriched by the very special finishing of the seat surface, which offers three-dimensional optical effects and pleasing reflections; the unusual the unusual texture confers a totally new and pleasant tactile effect. For the seat, consisting of just one piece, a 100% recyclable copolymer with good resistance to chemical agents and pleasing optical qualities was selected, and is available in transparent finish with three-dimensional effect, black with silk effect, or white with wool effect.

'Bonne Nuit' by Michele De Lucchi and Alberto Nason

'Bonne Nuit' by Michele De Lucchi and Alberto Nason

Maybe the Italian manufacturer Produzione Privata wanted to deal with new European guidelines, which will ban frosted incandescent bulbs from the market soon.

Anyway, with ‘Bonne Nuit’ the designers Michele De Lucchi and Alberto Nason created a beautiful series of glass lamps, which give the option to diffuse the light.
