Francesco Lucchese, Sicily, took his degree in Architecture on March 1985 at the Milan's Polytechnic University. He won the first prize for the project of a folding chair, called Traslazione, which was presented at the ADI (Industrial Design Association) for the Industrial Group Busnelli.
"Look to the past to design the present with ideas looking to the future", this is the design philosophy of Francesco Lucchese that, for his works he starts always from historical examples and, trying to anticipate tendencies and future needs, develops projects in favor of a certain Company strategy.
The ingredients of his design are the addition, to the aesthetical aspect, of the functionality and sensitiveness connected to the use of an object. A particular attention is dedicated to the color, always studied to dialogue both with the object and with the user.
Francesco Lucchese projects are created and followed so to become an interactive experience. Sensory activity becomes a primary element in design philosophy and the sight, touch, sounds, perfume ... are elements allowing, with search, to give strength to design interventions.
The architect activity is defined through important projects: the restoration of a museum, various interventions of urban furniture, the realization of a modern school, of unifamiliar houses and recently the Multi-room Cineplex and the Hotel Les Fleurs in Sofia (Bulgary). Various are the interventions of interior design both in Italy and Internationally. He proceeds in parallel with the teaching activity, to the Brera Academy first, to continue today at the Milan Polytechnic at the Design Faculty. Frequents are also his presences to workshops abroad, Swiss, Mosca, Cina... The activity of the studio coordinates projects of industrial positioning and brand image as Grohe, communication events and design exhibition, strategies of product design A+DESIGN, BMOOD, Olympia Ceramica, Mosaico+, Luce di Carrara.
