Light is technology, but at the same time culture, thoughts, emotions
The company mission is not limited to the manufacturing of top-quality lighting fixtures: it also means to study and understand light, make the others understand it and impro
ve the integration between light and architecture through industrial design.
To this end some of the most famous lighting designers and architects in the world have co-operated with iGuzzini starting from its earlier years: Giò Ponti, Ro
dolfo Bonetto, Bruno Gecchelin, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Gae Aulenti, Piero Castiglioni, Jean Michel Wilmotte, just to mention some of them.
To design light is not only to illuminate spaces, it also means to be aware of all
the aspects that are related with the quality of lighting, both indoors and outdoors. This is the reason of the co-operation between iGuzzini and numerous investigators, doctors, sociologists and physicists from the most important European researching in
stitutes: Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, "La Sapienza" University in Rome, Polytechnics in Milan, Central Institute for Restoration, National Research Council of Italy (CNR).
iGuzzini was establis
hed in 1958 and produces today indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures. It is the Italian leader in technical and architectural lighting and ranks amongst the leading companies in Europe.
It belongs to Fimag, a holding company that includes the c
ompanies of the Guzzini Group, that is Fratelli Guzzini, iGuzzini and Teuco. iGuzzini headquarters are in Recanati, in the Italian region known as The Marches, with an area of 150,000 square metres, of which 54,000 trampleable.
