Giulio Iacchetti

An industrial designer since 1992, he has created projects for many different brands, including Abet Laminati, Alessi, Coop, Danese, Foscarini, Casamania, Globo Ceramiche, Jannelli&Volpi, Dorelan, Magis, Meritalia, Moleskine, Pandora design, Fontana Arte, Grom. His distinctive approach includes research and the definition of new types of objects, such as the “Moscardino”, a multiuse biodegradable utensil designed with Matteo Ragni for Pandora design – winner of the Compasso d’Oro in 2001. In 2009 he was assigned the Prize of Prizes for Innovation by the President of the Italian Republic for the project Eureka Coop, with which he brought design into a major retail context. In May 2009 the Milan Triennale
presented a solo show of his work entitled “Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient Objects”. In November 2012 he launched Internoitaliano, a “diffused factory” composed of many crafts workshops: the collection now includes over 40 objects, of his own design or by other Italian designers. In 2014 he won his second Compasso d’Oro for the “Sfera” series of manhole covers designed with Matteo Ragni for Montini. He also creates books and curates exhibitions, including the show “K Rations. The Meals of Soldiers in Action” at the Triennale di Milano (January 2015), where he investigated the essential character of a form of anonymous design connected with food, namely that of military rations.
