Oluce was founded in 1945 by Giuseppe Ostuni, and is the oldest Italian design company still operating in the lighting world, a unique production excellence which translates passionate aesthetic and technological research into the potential of light into actual form. Over the years, Oluce has succeeded in building a collection structured like a tale, rich and multifaceted, inhabited by products that transcend fashion to become Italian design icons and produce some of the finest lamps in the world such as the Atollo.
Stunning lighting such as the Atollo metal lamp became a template, a graphic silhouette capable of suggesting the very concept of ”lamp”. Inimitable, though copied the world over, it won the 1979 Compasso d’Oro award and took its place in the permanent collections of the world’s leading design and decorative art museums, becoming so much more than just a lamp. The Atollo metal lamp has became an icon world wide.
The contemporary nature of Oluce brings together the past, present and future, tying them together to form an evocative and designed collection, where geometry of forms is completed with unusual materials and precious finishes. The new millennium confirms and continues the search for interpreters, voices and hands capable of finding different ways to present lighting in line with the company philosophy and continue to produce quality, elegant and sophisticated designer lighting.
