With a degree in architecture, Lucas Recchia (Florianópolis, 1992) began his career as a designer in 2018, after a successful experience creating a fused glass side table. He has an aesthetic sense and irreverent technique, carried out by specialist craftsmen with whom he has since been exploring new paths, such as the use of recycled glass and solar energy in the manufacturing process. Lucas develops collections for Brazilian and international brands and galleries, as well as bespoke pieces. In addition to glass, his work has used Brazilian stones from an experimental perspective combined with exquisite manufacturing and finishing.

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.

In his latest work, Lucas dives deeper into the use of glass and explores the feeling that the aesthetics of broken glass evokes in people: "the feeling of both loss and transformation at the same time because a broken object goes from being to becoming something else.”

“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.”
