Giulia Archimede is a multi disciplinary designer focusing on lighting design. Her passion for nature, art and craftsmanship comes from the strong bond she has for her ancient town Florence, which is the main source of her inspiration.
With a training on interior design, she is interested not only in the concept and the end product, but the spiritual idea of everyday life and the nature of materials she chooses to work with. She embraces this spiritual philosophy into the making of her creations, which lead back to nature, stars and to the original matter. Not by chance, they are about light..
After living several years in Cape Town and Helsinki where she gained significant experience both humanistically and professionally, she moved back to Italy to create her own collection of work. Between foundries and marble quarries of Pietrasanta, she encountered great wisdom of master craftsmen which shaped her products to become great examples of Italian manufacturing. Her first Alchemie Creation was produced by Cattelani&Smith and was exhibited at Salone del Mobile in 2019.
“What is presented in my works is a feeling, an emotion taking shape. Every object is a conveyor to express emotions in a way that would not be possible through the use of words.”
