In 2020, as the company celebrates its 70th anniversary, Studio Italia Design changes to Lodes, to consolidate our commitment to distinctive decorative design. Balancing technical know-how and the best Made in Italy design, Venice-based Lodes has been designing and producing lighting solutions for interiors and exteriors since 1950. For the family, light is a 70-year heritage.
Balancing technical know-how and the best Made in Italy design, Venice-based Lodes has been designing and producing lighting solutions for interiors and exteriors since 1950. Originating in founder Angelo Tosetto's passion for glass and informed by continuous technological research, the company has evolved into one of Europe’s leading designers and manufacturers of decorative lighting, currently present in 90 markets worldwide. Today, Lodes represents a three-generation evolution from pure passion to brilliant architectural solutions, creating light sources that fuse contemporary design and innovative technology with materials of the highest quality, scrupulously developed with the best processing techniques.
The firm has been selected as one of the most dynamic Italian companies according to the survey “Campioni della crescita 2020” (Growth champions), as well as in 2021, published in La Repubblica’s “Affari & Finanza”.
Since the early 2000s Lodes has invited external designers to collaborate with our R&D team. The laboratory is the place where designers’ creative ideas are shaped, where elaborate sketches give life to visions that evolve until they reach the form we all desire. The encounter of external design perspectives with the solid manufacturing know–how generates fresh and captivating contemporary product narratives.
“We have been studying light, designing for light and with light all these decades. We can say that we learn from light, and I assure you that light always has plenty to teach us. Our family heritage is deeply connected to our territory: which is Venice, Murano and its blown glass, the shiny tesserae of mosaics, the reflections of the lagoon, the squares of the Venetian cities, bustling with merchants and energy. In 2020 we celebrate our70th anniversary and Studio Italia Design becomes Lodes.” Massimiliano Tosetto, General Manager
