Stylish modern lighting fro the home or contemporary workplace.
There are products which not only brighten a room, but also one\'s frame of mind and prevent us from continually hitting our heads against a wall; or from viewing the world in tones of grey; which give us orientation and a sense of comfort; which stimulate the brain or calm one down; which enlarge a room or achieve a more intimate atmosphere; which put one in a good humour or make one nervous. Shouldn\'t we approach such products with respect and diligence? Sources of light – in other words lamps of all kinds, are the most rudimentary elements of our interior decoration. This is also the leading principle of ANTA, our small but fine lamp factory. We are proud that we rank among the best manufacturers in Europe.

Arper is a brand widely lauded for its pursuit of the essential.
Is an object as elemental as a chair or a table still subject to insight or innovation? After eons of development, is there still something to be done?
Arper’s response is to consider everything as in flux – life, culture, technology – and to consider that basic fact through innovative design. Good design is a synthesis of technique, cost, material, function, use, taste and sustainability.

Cassina was founded by Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927. The company was pioneering in the way it showed a striking inclination for research and innovation, working side by side with important architects and designers with differing backgrounds and encouraging them to envision fresh designs, a characteristic that still distinguishes the company today.
Cassina has received three Compasso d’Oro prizes for individual products and in 1991 it was awarded the Compasso d’Oro award in recognition of “its innovative role and forerunning international approach within the Italian cultural and manufacturing sector”.
In 1964 the Cassina I Maestri Collection began with the acquisition of the exclusive worldwide rights to produce four models designed by Le Corbusier (who was living at the time) together with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Over the following years this collection has exclusively brought together some of the most iconic furniture by the great architects of modern classics working in close collaboration with the heirs and official foundations (Gerrit T.

ClassiCon has from its inception aspired not only to offer pieces by established figures such as Eileen Gray and Eckart Muthesius, but also to foster contemporary design and to present selected examples in its program. Naturally, the models chosen must display the kind of quality and advanced form that earns them the designation “classic”. The ClassiCon brand stands for quality, individuality and a timeless aesthetic—regardless of passing fashions. More important than the degree of fame achieved by the designer is a demonstrated fascination with new formal concepts. This focus helps ClassiCon to continually discover exciting young designers. In the case of Konstantin Grcic, this has resulted in a longstanding collaboration, which the
High quality means in concrete terms that pieces in the Classic Collection of furniture are indelibly marked and numbered consecutively. The ClassiCon signature provides a guarantee that only high-grade materials and methods are used in production – meeting all ecological requirements – and that every piece of furniture has passed strict quality control.

Woven and hand-tufted rugs made almost exclusively from the finest natural materials
In an increasingly standardized world in which products are mass produced, painstaking handwork is increasingly rare. However, this is what Kasthall represents: time for reflection, a longer and more valuable perspective. In business for 120 years, Kastall is united by a passion for their task: to create a rug that is unique, durable and irreplaceable. You can walk, play and live on a Kasthall rug for many years.
Materials are chosen with the utmost care. Aside from appearance, it is important that the yarns used have the characteristics appropriate for a wide variation of settings, such as wear resistance, fire resistance and environmental requirements. Kasthall’s woven and hand-tufted rugs are therefore made almost exclusively from the finest natural materials; wool and linen.
The urge to experiment and renew tradition is what drives Kasthall. The company places great importance on design with a view to be contemporary and to combine the known with the unexpected. It could be a colour, a new yarn or a pattern that finds a new expression. To make this possible Kasthall has its own design team who work closely with world-leading designers and architects. What never changes is a meticulous attention to detail.
All rugs are made to order and tailored to the customer’s individual wishes and needs. At Kasthall each woven and hand tufted rug is one of a kind, and receives a hand-signed label after its quality has been checked to the very last thread.
Inspired by James Bond and Dungeons, L\'Invisible make amazing doors which almost vanish into walls.
Over the years, the evolution of taste and furniture demands has turned doors into a key feature of interior design.
L’Invisibile was created in 1994 out of the experience of Portarredo Srl, an Italian company founded in the early 80’s that specializes in manufacturing doors and locking systems featuring exclusive designs and materials.
Portarredo distinguished itself from the very beginning thanks to the fully developed technology of its products. Through close collaboration with architects and engineers, Portarredo has developed products that look into the future of home-living and anticipate trends and needs.
L’Invisibile has evolved an exclusive patented system for doors and locks totally flush-to-wall that enables maximum versatility and personalisation, offering elegant and functional solutions to every furniture idea.
The objective of hiding and “masking” locks and openings in the walls is the fundamental concept of L’Invisibile philosophy. In fact, L’Invisibile system is the technological evolution of an old concept: dungeons.
Dungeons bring to mind doors that exist in perfect continuity with their setting, and were used throughout history to conceal from view openings whose existence we should not be aware of.

Since being established in 1945, Oluce have been responsible for many design classics of lighting.
Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. As early as 1951, Oluce registered a success at the IX Triennale lighting section, with an indirect incandescent luminator designed by Franco Buzzi. The company quickly achieved international through Domus magazine. Tito Agnoli achieved an important success in 1955, with mentions at the second "Compasso d\'oro" for two of his lamps. In 1956 two other mentions followed in rapid succession: for a truly remarkable table lamp in laminar polyvinyl, and for a pendant light with double perspex shade. And then there was the ground-breaking "Agnoli" model, a spot light supported on a slender stem, which in 1954 marked the decline of lampshades and the rise of highly simplified floor lamps for domestic lighting.
It was at the end of the decade, thanks to the encounter with Joe and Gianni Colombo, that Oluce took a more pronounced revolutionary slant. The Colombo brothers were seeking a receptive environment for their audacious designs: this was Oluce. In 1967 Colombo created his famous"Coupé", a curved stem of considerable size supporting an elegant semi-cylindrical shade, now exhibited at the MoMa in New York. In 1968 the Coupé light won the "International Design Award" of Chicago\'s American Institute of Interior Designers. 1970 saw the birth of the "Halogen light", the first indoor halogen light to appear on the market which became an unsurpassed icon of a design that is both functional and contemporary. In the meantime, a new and important era had begun at Oluce, coinciding with the transfer of ownership from Ostuni to the Verderi family, and dominated by one of the great masters of Italian design: Vico Magistretti. Under is creative authority Atollo even became a sort of template, a graphic silhouette that immediately rendered the concept of a "lamp".
At the start of the \'90s, it was the rigour of the emergent Swiss designer Hannes Wettstein which characterised the company\'s style. In 1997 the "Estela" lamp was the word\'s first industrially-produced object designed by the brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana, poetic narrators of their far-away Brazil. In 2000, the "Nuvola" series marked the start of Toni Cordero\'s collaboration with Oluce. One of the leading Italian architects of his generation, Cordero imposed his vision through the use of utterly disruptive and unconventional forms. Nuvola has been his last, wonderful project.
In 2001 white Murano glass stones and transparent perspex reeds populated the Oluce booth at Euroluce. For Oluce, the new millennium opens with new partnerships and new energy. But this is no longer the history of Oluce, but rather of Oluce\'s contribution to contemporary design.
The Company project is based on the study of yarns, their quality and performance, on material experimentation and the valorization of the characteristics that make them unique, on an innate attention to colours.
The rugs and seating collections, both for interior and exterior environments, stand out for the materials and upholstery fabrics, conceived by Paola Lenti and produced exclusively for the Company. Each fabric originates from the best natural or synthetic yarns, to guarantee functionality and aesthetics.
Rope and Aquatech yarns, the result of the Company’s continuous research and experimentation, allow for the creation of a range of solutions for the exteriors which are enduring and resistant to the atmospheric agents, sun rays, sea and swimming pool water. The fabrics for interior environments, such as felts of unique quality and performance or wools and cottons proposed in coordinated colours, offer infinite chromatic combinations.
The woods and the stones used for the structures and the tops suited for outdoor use are the result of an attentive selection which is coherent with the Company’s product philosophy. The metals, selected for their high performances, are treated to further improve their endurance.
