Davide Groppi: lamps, lighting, and light installations
Behind every Davide Groppi creation lays a precise philosophy meant to excite and seduce. Heterogeneous in character, the brand's interior lamps
are the result of the most varied inspirations ranging from art to crafts. Fixtures that play with light and draw joyful and cheerful lines flank the brand's more austere installations. Davide Groppi's creative team offers various emotional effects in the company's wide-ranging catalog of lamps and lighting fixtures. One of the brand's most recent creations is Meridiana
, a wall lamp whose presence is discreet but impossible to ignore. It uses the Endless patent, which eliminates the constraints of power cables.
Some table lamps
, like Bugia
, feature rechargeable battery power systems. With a design based on the idea of subtraction, Nulla
stands out among the recessed models
. Its evocative name, meaning literally "nothing", reflects the LED spotlight that is almost invisible to the eye. Davide Groppi also innovates ceiling lamps;
the Mini Punto PL
is a two-point metal light installation distinguished by its clean lines and efficient operation.
