Abstract

Connettoma tells about the connections activated in the design work of Michele De Lucchi’s studio, named AMDL CIRCLE since 2019.
Through a suggestive photographic sequence, the book traces the most significant creations of the studio, combined in order to make visible what the designer calls the “synapses of architecture”, meaning the associations of emotions, memories and thoughts that stimulate new creativity.
Covering over 20 years of activity, the images reveal a way of thinking about architecture and design in the light of a multidisciplinary, visionary, future-oriented – in a word, humanistic – approach.
At the end of the book, which includes a text by De Lucchi, is a chronologically arranged selection of projects carried out in the new millennium, in the fields of architecture, interiors, installations, product design, graphics and research.

Designer, architect, teacher and writer, Michele De Lucchi (1951) is one of the main representatives of Italian design in the world. Over the course of his long career, De Lucchi has designed objects and furnishings for the most renowned Italian and European companies, such as Artemide, Alias, Unifor, Hermès, Vitra, Poltrona Frau, Alessi, while also designing and renovating numerous buildings around the world. Among the many awards received, the prestigious Compasso d ’oro in 1989, 1991 and 1994. Many of his works are exhibited in the most important European, American and Japanese design museums.
