Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. In fact, before the war there existed only Gino Sarfatti's Arteluce, which disappeared in the late '90s, while 1948 saw the birth of Azucena and Lamperti, followed by Arredoluce and Stilnovo in 1950. But for many years it was chiefly Arteluce, Azucena and Oluce that dominated the Italian scene, creating a hub for the designers - strongly engaged first in the reconstruction and later in the birth of series production - who animated the Milanese forum: Vittoriano Viganò and BBPR, Gigi Caccia Dominioni and Ignazio Gardella, Marco Zanuso and Joe Colombo.
Raumgestalt designs, produces and markets beautifully shaped articles intended both for use and appreciation.
Believing that “art prevails over design,” Pablo Pallucco founded his company in 1982 in Treviso, Italy. It evolved into a design-driven company and, in the 1980s, took over production of Mariano Fortuny’s iconic 1921 lamp, a piece that has been likened to sculpture.
