The LCDC characters were born thanks to the contemporary vision of designer Luca Nichetto. Offering the perfect blend evoking the Renaissance atmosphere and the figurative heritage of the Ginori 1735 tradition, they stand out thanks to the study, research and development of forms from a single design, striking a harmonious balance between memory and innovation, characterised by the ultimate in craftsmanship.
To create the LCDC collection, Luca Nichetto reinterpreted the figurative art of the Manufacture, taking inspiration from Lucha Libre masks, from the illustrations of Jean-Paul Goude and from graffiti art. In the designer’s creative vision, the statuesque faces of the characters become the archetypal protagonists of the collection, mainly composed of candles available in various sizes and colours, complemented by incense burners and stick diffusers. Thanks to the design which blends the classicism of the ancestral statues with rigorous lines, the faces and sculptures take on a mysterious, iconic dimension. This artistic alchemy of graphic symbols creates a fusion of the scents and colours which evoke the ingredients used to create the fragrances.

“LCDC is a tribute to the characters we imagine would have formed the court of Caterina De’ Medici - they are astounding, disruptive and unconventional elements, but also offer a utopian vision of the present, in which everyone is on fire for an ideal.” 



Luca Nichetto was born in Venice in 1976, where his artistic talent found inspiration in the famous glass industry of Murano, in which members of his family were involved. His career effectively began while he was at school, when he would spend the holidays selling his designs to the local factories. He went on to study at the State Art School in Venice and graduated in 1998 with a degree in Industrial Design from the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (IUAV University of Venice). The following year, he joined the prestigious Murano glass manufacturer Salviati, before going on to become a product designer and consultant for the lighting company Foscarini. In 2006, he founded his own studio in Venice, Nichetto Studio. In 2011, he moved to Stockholm in Sweden, to open a second studio, combining his own Italian style with the Swedish spirit of modernity and sustainability. During his career, Nichetto has worked as an art director for many international design brands and has developed expert knowledge of the design industry. He has taught and led workshops at a range of universities, including working as a design professor at the IUAV, and has been on the panel for various international design competitions. Nichetto's work has been exhibited worldwide in prestigious exhibitions and been on show around the globe in retrospective exhibitions in cities such as London, New York and Beijing. He has won several international awards for his highly sophisticated and innovative design work, ranging from products, furniture and accessories, to architecture, exhibition design and branding.
