Michele De Lucchi was born in 1951 in Ferrara and graduated in architecture in Florence. During the period of radical and experimental architecture he was a prominent figure in movements like Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis. De Lucchi has designed lamps and furniture for well known Italian and European companies. The firm's philosophy is rooted in the search for deep interaction between architectural thinking, industrial design and global communication.

Note: All Tolomeo wall fixtures are shipped with a plug. To hardwire a fixture to a junction box, the plug will need to be cut, wires stripped and fixture mounted (by a licensed electrician).
