History

Formed in 1978, Luceplan cements the idea of three architects, Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto and Sandra Severi who wished to consolidate the experience developed during their long-standing collaboration with Gino Sarfatti, founder of Arteluce. He was an experimenter and acclaimed innovator in the sector of lighting fixtures. These are the noble roots, but the story we wish to relate does not follow a chronological sequence of events in the company’s growth, but rather ‘highlights’ constancies in it's evolution. A history marked by well-defined constant factors from the very start – experimentation, research and quality, by a philosophy focused on creating “beautiful items for the public at large” and by an attitude, a discrete refinement that has never been lost over the years. This is the mark left on lighting fixtures that have not been designed for short-lived wonder, but to be the natural outlet of a continuous, ongoing drive dedicated to the essence of every project, a fastidious care of detail and steady improvement. The result of this consistent experimentation that in turn implies skilled technological research. Passion for design and entrepreneurial courage, is a Luceplan commitment, both with a considerable investment in production – the new trademark Elementi di Luceplan, a line of technical, architectural and contract lighting fixtures which was formed in 2006 - and in marketing. It has opened new international branches (Copenhagen joins New York, Paris and Berlin) and more self-brand stores (there are three flagship store in Milan, New York and Paris, and about 2,000 points of sale in the world).
On May 2010 Luceplan has become part of the Philips Lighting Consumer Luminaires business.
