From 2004 De Lucchi sculptures little wooden houses with the chain saw to create the essentiality of the architecture.
(…) I moved from the lightness and quietness of the pencil to the roughness and din of the power saw, but without sacrificing my effort to treat the wood tenderly. These are solid little houses, found inside dead tree trunks knocked down by the wind. They were delicately worked with the power saw, and then trimmed by successive stages, modeling the surface with “brush-strokes” applied by the blade."
Michele De Lucchi, 2005
