De Lucchi and Fassina

Michele De Lucchi (1951 - ) & Giancarlo Fassina (1935 - )

“My most famous design is the Tolomeo, I designed it in 1986 and the success is still growing. Every year we make a new addition to it. I don’t know what the recipe for its success is. Sometimes I try to make ‘the new Tolomeo’ but these designs are usually totally uninteresting.”

Both successful designers in their own right, Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina joined forces in the late 1980s to create their acclaimed Tolomeo range for Artemide. Renowned for its functionality and timeless elegance, the Tolomeo range earned both designers a place in history.
