Steeped in symbolism, Davide Groppi’s lighting solutions invite viewers to think, play and reconsider traditional forms of illumination. Since the 1980s, the Italian designer has aimed to foster a human connection between light source and viewer. Through this method, he has created visually stunning solutions for homes, museums, restaurants, shops and hotels around the world. Simplicity, weightlessness, emotion and creative ingenuity are just a few of the notable characteristics in his designs. Above all, he aspires to create lamps that have never been invented before. From his Compasso d’Oro ADI 2014 award-winning Sampei light (inspired by a fishing pole) to his elegant and portable rechargeable lamps, Groppi’s creations are as powerful as they are pure.
