Karman is an Italian company producing indoor and outdoor lighting. It was founded in Fossombrone, in the heart of Italy’s Marche region in 2005, from the creative insight and entrepreneurial spirit of Davide Diamantini. The roots may be Italian, but the company itself has a strong vocation for operating on international markets, where its products are distributed with ever-increasing success. The strong, decorative identity that is such an important part of Karman means it stands out in the contemporary lighting panorama thanks to its ability to put together and create a dialogue in the spirit of suggestions and different projects that are unconventional but also have profound rigour, excellent precision and significant expertise when it comes to materials and lighting technologies. Light is experienced, first and foremost, as a continued source of inspiration.
Karman and decorative lighting, Made in ItalyIn Karman’s collections, the confines between lighting and decoration become blurred, with both aspects becoming all the richer in multifaceted, fun lighting projects that reinterpret classic shapes using materials and decorative touches that are seemingly at odds with one another, to seal and customise a vast range of rooms, from formal to decontracté styles.
Lighting projects that are perfect for private rooms and also niche contract orders, which have seen the company express its style with passion and expertise, interpreting coffee shops, bistros, restaurants, resorts, and designer hotels, using elegance and originality, for increasingly exhaustive design ideas to use indoors and outdoors. Varied light sources, with a shared desire to tell stories and create beauty, free from schemes and prejudices, expertly using a wide range of diversified materials and light technologies.
Design and designersStories of light told through the unmistakable language of its designers.
The designs of Matteo Ugolini - art director and creative, Baldessari&Baldessari, Giorgio Biscaro, Luca De Bona&Dario De Meo, Paola Navone, and Edmondo Testaguzza live together in a permanent quest for beauty and evocation, inspired with movements from nature, from the animal kingdom, and by memories and suggestions of the past, or from everyday items, to bring pure classical forms to life, and other brand new, more playful shapes in the lighting industry.
