Technical Details

Generations of craftsmanship, passion, and dedication in the Italian upholstery industry are on display throughout the Lucio series and are juxtaposed with a sense of contemporary lightness and breathability. The Lucio armchair’s sleek silhouette is subtly accentuated by unique multi-tone stitching throughout. Versatility and customization of the Lucio series offers a refined selection of fabrics and leathers curated by Marta Ferri.

“A very welcoming and sinuous sofa that invites to take time for yourself.”

Innovations in the world of comfort are perhaps most important when considering the Lucio armchair. Luxurious padding materials enhance ergonomic comfort while reducing environmental impact, upholding Molteni&C's commitment to sustainability. The padding uses Polimex®, a latest-generation material made from 50% recycled material, 100% recyclable and allowing to reduce CO2 emissions.


Vincent Van Duysen

Vincent Van Duysen was born in 1962, in Lokeren, Belgium and graduated in architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, in Ghent. From 1986 to 1989 he worked in Milan and Brussels. He opened his own studio in Antwerp, in 1990 focusing on architecture and interior design. The relationship between interior design and architecture in his work is profound. Furnishings and accessories are designed with an architectural perspective that is not limited by form, but is expressed with a careful perception of interior space and its relationship to the exterior architecture. By interpreting architecture and redefining its proportions, Van Duysen creates objects of great purity and simplicity that still retain a concrete character and solid form.
