Entrepreneur Ron Rezek's designs are modern lighting icons. After receiving a M.F.A. from UCLA, Rezek spent his early career teaching at UCLA, the Art Center College of Design, and Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCIA). He participated in exhibitions, where he translated his passion for simple design into light fixtures. In 1978, encouraged by the response to his designs, he founded Ron Rezek Lighting, which he now co-owns with Artemide.
Rezek’s goal was simple: to modernize the decorative lighting industry. He established Highlights, a group of high-end lighting showrooms, and The Modern Fan Company. Rezek’s state-of-the-art lighting reflects his philosophy of "simplicity in form and economy in production."
