Born in 1984, Adriano Rachele is an Italian industrial designer who specializes in the design of lighting fixtures.
Adriano graduated in Industrial Design in 2007, and began his professional career within the Research & Development department of Slamp, an Italian lighting company that he continues to work with to this day.
Pushing against the trend towards mass-produced items, Adriano’s design succeeds in providing each of his pieces with a sense of uniqueness, while still managing to produce them in series. He believes that design should possess soul, express poetry and emotion, and tell a story that goes beyond simple forms. His overarching goal is “to create objects that combine technology, functionality, and innovation with tradition and emotion, while maintaining their ironic and accessible nature. ”
In 2010, Adriano was recognized as one of the top young talents in Italian design for his Veli project, for which he received a Red Dot Design Award in 2012.
