Luceplan emerged in the late 1970's, founded by Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto and Sandra Severi, the trio wanted to create an experimental Italian lighting company, inspired by their own experiences of working with the pioneering Gino Sarfatti and Arteluce.
Their experiments proved to be resounding successes, with products such as their Constanza lamp finding a place in the MOMA permanent collection. For us, their recent work with Daniel Rybakken provides a great example of how conceptual design can be realised in practical, functional ways.
The most recent collaboration; Amisol is a pendant light that occupies a large physical space with a minimal physical volume. Their Counterbalance series is an exercise in appearing to defy the laws of physics with a series of precisely balanced counterweights. The original Counterbalance Wall light was a recipient of the prestigious XXIII Compasso d’Oro Prize in 2014.
Viaduct is an official UK dealer of Luceplan lighting.
