Lucas Recchia




Lucas Recchia, born in 1992, on an island in the south part of Brazil starts his career as a designer in 2018 with his first solo show for the avant-garde gallery Firma Casa in São Paulo and quickly catches the attention of the whole country as the first Brazilian designer to develop glass techniques in furniture design. He incorporates the potential of recycled glass with ancient techniques with solar energy used by artisans with worldwide experience.
“My purpose is to mix the boundaries between art and design from the standpoint of a not-too-obvious functionality and also express/add a Brazilian element that is not focused on the traditional modern Brazilian furniture made of wood.”

Lucas currently works in his atelier in downtown São Paulo, where he develops his new projects with a group of local artisans. With a focus on how to reuse traditional materials, besides glass, bronze, aluminum and Brazilian stones, he approaches them from a unique perspective.
