"We like to test ourselves on never addressed design areas. We consider each new typology a challenge to express our personality."
LucidiPevere is a partnership between two Italian designers, Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere.
Paolo and Luca were both born in the province of Udine, and met at Politecnico di Milano, where they both studied Industrial Design. After graduation, Paolo worked at the studio founded by Piero Lissoni, and later, collaborated with designer Marc Sadler. Luca, meanwhile, began his professional career with the Italian artist Clino Trini Castelli.
In 2003, Paolo and Luca began to collaborate on various design projects, and in 2006, the LucidiPevere studio was established in Udine. Paolo and Luca are known for using unusual techniques and aesthetic means to develop new forms and products, such as lamps, furniture, and accessories.
“Our projects are usually sparked by an intuition, a material, a process, a clever artisan, or business man. By lots of things, ” they explain. “In most cases, though, we start with a technology, with trying to express a material in the best possible way without pushing it too far, without trying to make it do things it wasn’t born to do. ”
Some of the brands that LucidiPevere work with include De Padova, Zanotta, Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, Agape, Ligne Roset, Foscarini, Kristalia, Living Divani, Normann Copenhagen, Very Wood, Emu, Casamania, DeCastelli, La Cividina, and Teracrea.
Their products have appeared in major museums worldwide, and have won several major awards including the Designpreis Deutschland, a Red Dot Design Award, a Good Design Award, and Compasso d’Oro Honourable Mentions.
Notable lamps designed by LucidiPevere for Foscarini include the Aplomb collection, the Bahia collection, and the Falena.
