Giulio Iacchetti designed the basket Celata. He was inspired by the part of the helmets of medieval knights. The sallet (‘celata’ in Italian) protected their faces but enabled them to see out: the basket, created from a piece of cut sheet metal reproduces the parts of this sallet, alternating large expanses of material with voids, and revealing games of lights and shadows.

In 2009 he was awarded the prize for innovation – Premio dei Premi – by the President of the Italian Republic for the Coop Eureka project, which brought the design in the large-scale retail trade. In May 2009 the Triennale di Milano held a solo exhibition entitled “Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient objects “. In November 2012 he launches Internoitaliano, the “factory network” made up of many craftsmen labs with whom he signs and produces furniture and accessories inspired by the italian way of living. He had also pursued his personal research project into new design topics such as the symbol of cross from which came the exhibition titled Cruciale held by the Diocesan Museum, Basilica di Santo Stefano Rotondo in Rome and by Castello di Lombardia in Enna, Sicily. In 2014, he won his second Compasso d’Oro for the design of the manhole covers Sfera, designed with Matteo Ragni for Montini. www.giulioiacchetti.com
