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.

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.
