Italian Lamps and Lighting Systems
Ask any interior designer to name one of the most important elements in creating atmosphere in a room and they will all answer the same way – lighting. The correct selection of lamps and lights can change the mood from warm and cozy to cool and professional. Clever and thoughtful lighting can draw attention away from the less attractive parts of your space and play up the features you want to highlight and enhance. And if you are serious about making your home a truly beautiful place that is a pleasure to live in then there is really only one choice – Italian lighting.
The range of Italian lamps and lights is astonishing. The country may be synonymous with sunshine and the outdoors, but the Italians know a thing or two about how to make the very best of indoor space too and how powerful good lighting can be.
Since the 30’s and 40’s Italian lighting designers have introduced us to a wide range of Italian lamps and lighting solutions that have become justifiably famous all over the world. From classic chandeliers to minimalist spot lighting you are certain to find a style that suits your decor.
One of the most iconic and best selling lamp designs in the world is Ferruccio Laviani’s ‘Bourgie’ created for Kartell. It cleverly combines classic design with a modern twist – it has a Baroque design but is made from polycarbonate – pretty cool, huh.
Another Italian classic in the world of lamp design is the Arco floor lamp dating from the early 60s and designed by Achille e Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Italian design company Flor. The arco’s characteristic sleek ‘C’ shape culminating in a swivelling shade have been much copied over the last decades. It epitomises Italian lighting design – simple, elegant and functional.
Good lighting is not just confined to indoors. Your garden, pool or rooftop can be brought to life at night with outdoor lighting, adding a magical dimension as the sun goes down. In fact the Italians are extremely innovative when it comes to using solar energy and so you can benefit, if you live in the right climate, from outdoor lighting systems powered by renewable solar energy. So you get something truly beautiful that costs nothing to run, which has got to be a good deal.
