Some designers can do everything. Italian architect Michele De Lucchi is one of them. De Lucchi set up Produzione Privata in 1990 to develop furniture, lighting, and accessories designed to enhance daily living. His philosophy? Shades of the Bauhaus, with an emphasis on experimentation and close collaboration with artisans. Over the years, the effort has developed into a collection of workshops scattered across Italy. Each specializes in a particular material or process. Each emphasizes the art of craft, and glories in the touch of the hand. Today, the Produzione Privata line encompasses a full range of objects for modern living, in materials ranging from porcelain and glass to metal, wood, and marble.
