Pallucco: the beginnings
“You need the eyes of a sailor toa see the shore beyond the horizon”…. it is indeed with such eyes that Pallucco has ventured down the paths of design since the 1980s, identifying and capturing more than mere fashion, but rather embracing style trends entirely. An attentive, educated and nonconformist approach, which has enabled the company to be affirmed on the international scene since its foundation. Bearing witness to this are the exhibitions in the spaces of the Mattatoio in Milan (1987 ⁄ 1988 ⁄ 1989) and the collaborations with Peter Lindbergh and Rei Kawakubo.
Pallucco in the 1990s
Rigour and urban minimalism were Pallucco’s cornerstones in the 1990s, under the art direction of Hannes Wettstein, who designed for the company one of his masterpieces, the Continua bookcase, bringing to the forefront of the design world the concept of technology as a new form beyond aesthetics.
Pallucco in the 2000s
After 2000, everything was all about decoration. The art direction of Jurgen Bey moves Pallucco’s focus onto new forms and new formal languages. At the same time, the group of designers who produce and experiment new solutions grows larger, exploring the frontiers of contemporary design with the freedom of expression which is the most authentic signature of the Pallucco style. Hannes Wettstein, Jean Nouvel, Tom Dixon, Jaime Hayón, Christian Deuber, Sergio Calatroni, Denis Santachiara, Kazuhiro Yamanaka, Enrico Franzolini, Lagranja Design, Susanne Philippson, Matalie Crasset, Constance Guisset and Brian Rasmussen create exclusive pieces for Pallucco that distinguish the style of a think tank where multicultural design trends merge together to form unique concepts.
Pallucco towards the future
The current production is a fusion of contemporary, historical and timeless objects. The Fortuny lamp by Mariano Fortuny, the visionary masterpiece of the beginning of the twentieth century, best represents the spirit. Pallucco has a history with roots in a prestigious past that looks keenly to the future.
