Extremely rare postmodern Italian masterpiece by architect Paolo Pallucco, 1984 Literature: Design Dasein, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg 1987 Material: black lacquered iron. Pallucco, historic brand in the world of design specialized in the production of decorative lamps and interior furnishings, was born in the 1970s in Rome thanks to architect Paolo Pallucco. In the early 1980s, the company moved to the Veneto region and immediately stood out for the non- conformist concept of its designs and image. Pallucco stands for design culture and experimentation of art, architecture and design: in an ongoing exploration of the boundaries of contemporary design and with great freedom of expression, which is the authentic label of Pallucco, the company switches from the research of the most diverse idioms and styles, under the guidance of Hannes Wettstein and Jurgen Bey, to contamination with the fashion world through the collaboration with photographer Peter Lindbergh and stylist Rei Kawakubo. Pallucco's collection includes designs that revive ancient techniques such as glass blowing in cage or explore the technical and aesthetic potential of metal mesh or again reinterpret the traditional chandelier in light of inspirations taken from modern art. A single Lizie chair has a retail market value of over 4,000 USD. I've never seen more than two available at the same time. Design fans this is an opportunity that is not to be missed.
