The Zaneen Story
Robert Pietrobon, the current president and CEO of Zaneen, co-founded the company with his father-in-law, the late Anthony Basso, in 1981. Fluent in Italian (their heritage is Northern Italian), the two set off to bridge the gap between Italian manufacturers and the North American market by bringing quality Italian light fixtures overseas.
Over the years, their market has included architectural, decorative, and outdoor and has grown into the LED field, providing all the testing, reports and certification in their in-house CSA/UL approved laboratory. They assemble all of their products onsite.
Why We Love Zaneen Lighting
Working mainly with white frosted glass, Zaneen hand-forms modern light fixtures into many shapes with a range of personalities. Their high-tech metal fixtures range from casual to decorative, each one an original lighting design, all done with classic materials. The contemporary lighting pieces are of excellent quality, and their minimalist appearance allows the fixtures to work in a number of different spaces.
Fun Facts About Zaneen
Zaneen has worked on many high profile, large scale projects that include Disneyworld, Six Flags and Atlantic City's Show Boat. As of 2012, Zaneen has been able to offer the iconic designs from the bold and contemporary Slamp.
Noteworthy Lighting from Zaneen
Inspired by a game of dominoes, the Zaneen Domino Flushmount plays with mathematical concepts for a truly contemporary look. And look to the Mini Libera Pendant for a curvaceous shape that brightens modern kitchens and living areas with its solid beam of LED downlight.
