Since 1992, Giulio Iacchetti has been a prominent industrial designer, collaborating with numerous renowned brands, including Abet Laminati, Alessi, Artemide, Fontana Arte, Foscarini, Ifi, and Pandora design. He currently serves as the Art Director of Abet Laminati and Dnd handles. One of the defining characteristics of his work is his dedication to researching and defining new object typologies.

Notably, he co-designed the Moscardino, a biodegradable spoon/fork with Matteo Ragni, which received the prestigious Compasso d’Oro award in 2001. In 2009, he earned the Innovation Award, “Premio dei Premi,” from the President of the Italian Republic for his Coop Eureka project, which brought design to the large-scale retail sector.

Giulio Iacchetti’s contributions to design are showcased in various exhibitions, including the solo exhibition titled “Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient Objects,” held at the Triennale di Milano in May 2009. In November 2012, he launched Internoitaliano, a “factory network” comprised of numerous artisan workshops, where he collaboratively designs and produces furniture and accessories inspired by the Italian way of living.

Furthermore, his personal research has explored innovative design topics, such as the symbol of the cross, leading to the exhibition titled “Cruciale” held at the Diocesan Museum, Basilica di Santo Stefano Rotondo in Rome, and Castello di Lombardia in Enna, Sicily. In 2014, he secured his second Compasso d’Oro award for his design of the manhole covers named Sfera, created in partnership with Matteo Ragni for Montini.
