De Lucchi Workshop is a group of creative Architects and Designers who use their knowledge and experience to develop and deliver solutions and innovative projects to its customers.
To do this, they deal with everything related to the development of the project itself and not only the visual aspects related to the design.
The main aspect of this philosophy is the continuous search of a deep interaction between the architectural thought and design industry by promoting Teamwork rather than personal expression, the practical requirements instead of formal conventions, functionality and clarity rather than complexity.
De Lucchi Workshop develops solutions to find easily problem solutions by questioning the role of the project itself. This methodology, combined with a firm belief in the technological evolution and in the processes of production, is used as a support for a wide range of activities of De Lucchi Workshop: architecture and furniture systems, industrial product design and delivery of services.
De Lucchi Workshop is a global partner for its customers and assists the project from conception to shipbuilding supervision, the development of innovative strategies for producing prototypes.
I have been thinking for several years that “academic institutions” need to deal with the present economic and commercial world in which we live. We are part of a system that continues “to feed consumption of products and the need”……
the Companies are the managers of our existence …
They must be loved, respected and in some ways, helped …
We need to know” the industrial world that surrounds us “in order to be for them an important resource; Companies need us as we need them!
This is why, in each on my course, in all of my educational experience, that I create with the participants, there is always a Company and we share our ideas and our thoughts and projects …
Only in this way, we can better understand the the industrial world.
