Questions & Answers
Luceplan Fortebraccio 05 Swing Arm Wall or Ceiling Light
In 1978 Paolo Rizzato, Riccardo Sarfatti and Sandra Severi, who had been together at the Politecnico University in Milan, founded Luceplan, concentrating initially on the design and making of prestige interior lighting. Luceplan specialized in projects for particularly challenging and high quality situations and locations, including numerous historic buildings.
Luceplan continued to forge ahead by insisting on a clear idea of a business in which design is not "styling", that is to say not "added design", but rather the outcome of a continuous and coordinated exchange of different company functions. In the projects which Luceplan puts into production, there is a constant search for artistic simplicity as the solution to complexity.
Luceplan lighting immediately conveys a sense that they are the product of inspired, incessant research. Impervious to the dictates of fashion, these artistic strokes nevertheless reflect contemporary trends and elements. Luceplan is dedicated to promoting experimentation, innovation and technology, improved performance standards, inventiveness and beauty.
