Our Italian lighting service specialist has been in Design and Decorative Arts both, as a gallery curator and as a collector and retailer, for almost twenty years, with a special focus in the period between the 1950s and 1980s. This Mid Modern lighting collection is the result of an in depth study and research of artists and designers who have had a real influence on the refinement and innovation of home furnishings, both in the forms and materials used for lamps, chairs, armchairs and furniture.
Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Gae Aulenti, Gaetano Pesce are some of the names that have revolutionized the concept of Design for the past 60 years and thanks to the total support of light companies such as Artemide, Flos and Poltronova they were able to express the best that the Made in Italy brand has been able to export and has been appreciated throughout the world.
Our policy with regard to the treated pieces is to leave them as much as possible to their natural state with minimum restoration unless its strictly necessary for conservation. In our view an object retains its charm and value even, and especially, in the imperfections and signs that the passing of time has left on them. I believe that time is indissociable from the creative work that lives and matures: you need to respect the integrity and the natural state of every historic piece, avoiding superficial cosmetic interventions and restoring only when strictly necessary for conservation.
