Kundalini started its activity back in 1996, when it developed the intuition of a new typology of lamps defined as “Objects of inner Illumination”: lighting design products conceived to create evocative and harmonious light atmospheres and have a positive impact both on the inner life and on the ambient.
This corporate mission, which is expressed in the claim “Extra-sensorial Design”, has since the start contrasted most of the lighting productions of a rationalist nature which were fashionable in that period and which mainly intended to hide the light source and promote an environment characterised by volumes of reflected light.
The development of the company’s project has led to the creation of extremely innovative forms of light, which are characterised not only by an aesthetic, but also an ecstatic connotation. These luminous bodies establish emotional relations with those who observe and experience them, thus influencing their perceptions in a positive and deeply relaxing way. Right after its début, Kundalini extended its collection also to furniture and furnishings, introducing biodynamic and neo-ergonomic elements into the classic form/function equation which were extremely innovative and designed for an ideal well-being of the body and the spirit.
Since then this “young” company has been considerably successful, to the point of being in Italy and abroad one of the most published companies in its field. But the great visibility of Kundalini in the media has gone well beyond the strictly professional area of design specialists, since its products have frequently appeared in international movie productions, advertisements, television programmes and video-clips. Historic products such as the floor lamp E.T.A., the collection of lamps Shakti, the armchair Hara and recently the lamp Bokka or the Gherkin edition have already become cult icons for the media worldwide.
Kundalini has been classified by the international contemporary design community as a pioneering company not only for the development of the new themes that it has introduced and which are now very widespread, but also for the innovative spirit of its style and the advanced research work in new production technologies and new materials. Evidence of this is provided by the invention of bicolour co-extrusion or the serial use of laser-sintering. Kundalini is considered as a cutting-edge company also for its ability to revisit traditional craftsmanship techniques in a contemporary key, from the ecological fibreglass products of the beginning to the Murano blown or plated glass of the latest projects.
Ten years after its creation, Kundalini is now a company with extensive experience, which is still oriented towards the identification of cutting-edge research solutions and can count on the co-operation of designers and architects who share its innovative spirit.
