Founded by Giuseppe Ostuni in 1945, Oluce is one of the oldest Italian lighting companies specializing in iconic contemporary lighting for home and office.
During its early stages the company used traditional Murano glass blowing techniques. This approach was changed in the mid-1950s when it was time to take a more industrial-minded direction. Resulting in highly contemporary designs with an edgy and dramatic flair.
Over the years the brand attracted well known designers to contribute to the collection of lamps. Designs by Ferdi Giardini, Oki Sato, Joe and Gianni Colombo among others were the main reason behind the company’s growth. The Coupe floor lamp, designed by Colombo in 1967, is one of the company’s most valuable pieces. It won an International Design Award in the past and is still very popular until this day. A few years later the Italian brand fabricated the Atollo table lamp. Labelled as a true monument, this design is presented during exhibitions in various museums such as the MOMA in New York.
