Giulio Iacchetti, industrial designer since 1992, designs for a number of brands, including: Abet Laminati, Alessi, Artemide, Ceramiche Refin, Danese, Fontana Arte, Foscarini, Magis, Moleskine, and Pandora design.
Among the distinctive characteristics of his work is the research and definition of new object typologies, like the Moscardino, the biodegradable spork he designed with Matteo Ragni for Pandora design and for which, in 2001, he won the Compasso d’Oro award. In 2009 he was awarded the prize for innovation – Premio dei Premi – by the President of the Italian Republic for the COOP Eureka project, which brought design to the large-scale retail trade. In May 2009 the Triennale di Milano held a solo exhibition entitled “Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient objects”.
Always aware of the evolution of the relationship between design and the artisan, in November of 2012 he launched Internoitaliano, the “factory network” made up of many artisan workshops with whom he designs and produces furniture and accessories inspired by the Italian way of living. At the same time, he also pursued his personal research project into new design topics such as the symbol of cross which resulted in the exhibition entitled “Cruciale” exhibited at the Diocesan Museum of Rome’s Basilica di Santo Stefano Rotondo and by Castello di Lombardia in Enna, Sicily.
In 2014, he won his second Compasso d’Oro award for the design of the Sfera manhole covers, designed in collaboration with Matteo Ragni for Montini.
