Giulio Iacchetti has been an industrial designer since 1992, and designs for many brands including Abet Laminati, Alessi, Danese, Elica, Foscarini, Globo Ceramiche, Jannelli&Volpi, Hastens, Magis, Meritalia, Moleskine and Pandora design. The distinctive characteristics of his work include his research and the creation of new categories of objects, such as the Moscardino, a biodegradable spoon/fork designed with Matteo Ragni, which won a Compasso d’Oro in 2001. In 2009 he was awarded the “Premio dei Premi” prize for innovation, presented by the President of the Italian Republic, for the Coop Eureka project, which introduced design into the large-scale retail trade.
In May 2009 the Triennale di Milano held a solo exhibition entitled “Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient Objects”. In November 2012 he launched Internoitaliano, the “factory network” made up of many craftsman-based workshops, with whom he designs and produces furniture and accessories inspired by the Italian way of living. He has also pursued his own personal research into new design topics such as the symbol of cross, giving rise to the “Cruciale” exhibition, held by the Diocesan Museum, Basilica di Santo Stefano Rotondo in Rome, and by Castello di Lombardia in Enna, Sicily.
In 2014, together with Matteo Ragni, he won his second Compasso d’Oro for the design of Sfera manhole covers for Montini.
