Giulio Iacchetti, born in 1966, works in the field of industrial design since 1992. He alternates this activity with teaching at many universities and schools of design in Italy and abroad. The distinctive characteristics of his work are research and definition of new object typologies, like the Moscardino, the multiuse biodegradable utensil for which, in 2001, together with Matteo Ragni, he wone the Compasso d'Oro, with the object becoming part of the permanent design collection of MoMA New York. The concept and coordination of the group project Eureka Coop, for Coop Italia, brought design into the major retailing circuit and focused on the new generation of Italian design. In 2009 this project won the Premio dei Premi for the innovation bestowed by the President of the Italian Republic. He works as artistic director for important brands like iB rubinetterie, Ceramica Globo and Il Coccio design edition. For Corraini Edizioni he has edited the book Italianità, a collection of contributions on objects, symbols, odors, flavors and sounds that contribute to form the consciousness of the Italian people. In May 2009 the Milan Triennale held a solo show of his work entitled 'Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient Objects'.
