The AXO Light Story
AXO Light started as a family-run business in 1996 in Venice, Italy. Founded on strong glass blowing traditions, AXO merged this one-of-a-kind art form with avant-garde, contemporary lighting techniques and materials and built their entire product line around this seemingly contradicting relationship.
While AXO is renown for its offering of modern Italian lighting collections like the Muse, Avir and Spillray that are meant for residential spaces, the company also offer fixtures intended for commercial applications. Their "Lightecture" line represents over 5,000 variations on size, type, color and light source especially handy for giving each commercial space its own distinct personality. And AXO introduced MindLED in 2012 to combine a decorative look with the technical nature of LED light fixtures. The MindLED line also includes several highly functional fixtures suited for architectural and commercial applications.
Why We Love AXO Light
AXO Light presents beautiful, one of a kind fixtures that make memorable statements. They effortlessly embrace contemporary design while remaining strikingly minimal in composition (contrary to the popular "more is better" philosophy). AXO Light's ability to transform any type of material—whether it be glass, metal, silken thread or polycarbonate—into stunning modern light fixtures gives AXO lighting fixtures a distinction and transforming presence for both the home and office.
