legance and innovation; this is what drives Italian lighting design brand Oluce. Set up in 1945 by iconic designer Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian interior design firm still in business. Throughout the years, Oluce has given life to real works of art, lamps which have shaped contemporary aesthetics and which have played a crucial role in the history of modern design, becoming real international icons in their own right. The Oluce production is best known for lamps with perfect geometric shapes like the iconic Atollo (1977), and innovative designs like Spider (1966) and Coupé (1967). Without a doubt, the success reached by Oluce comes from building fruitful partnerships with some of the top names on the Italian and international design scene like Vico Magistretti, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso and more recently Nendo and Victor Vasilev. Furthermore, Oluce doesn’t only represent the best of the past, in fact by developing new silhouettes and cutting edge technology, this brand continues to make an invaluable contribution to contemporary design.
