The Leucos Lighting Story
Founded by Eugenio Pamio in Scorze, Italy in 1962, Leucos Lighting was known for its marriage of contemporary design and old-world Venetian glass techniques. Pamio's brother, architect Roberto Pamio, and the husband-wife team Renato Toso and Noti Massari, provided the early designs (they still remain a strong part of the Leucos Lighting design team along with their grown children).
In 1993/4, the company was purchased by Alfonso Benedetti and then sold to the FDV Group in 2008. At that point, Leucos moved to Solzano, close to their original home. In 2013, the FDV group began operating under the highly regarded Leucos name.
Why We Love Leucos Lighting
Leucos Lighting fixtures are shapely and contemporary. Using very little metal in their designs, Leucos Lighting turns from typical Italian light fixtures and bases their line on opal glass and quality plastics. Even when using only a few materials, Leucos Lighting brings something completely new and original to the table every time. They make you want to get up close to the fixture and try to figure out how they made it. The pieces are utterly fascinating--strong representations of the artists and the dedication to combining past and present traditions and techniques.
