Founded in 1996, the productive philosophy of AXO LIGHT is based on the quality of materials and the elegance of shapes that are in tune with modern and contemporary design. Quality and design are the main features of AXO Light's philosophy: "In our opinion quality means a wise choice of raw materials and thorough control conducted through all the stages of the manufacture. Quality is also intended as a constant search for materials and innovation in design. Starting from tradition we produce new, refined lighting devices characterized by a well-known and appreciated design". According to AXO Light's philosophy quality and design are therefore complementary and deeply bound. Made in Italy.
Born in Murano, Venice, in 1962, Marcello Furlan owes his passion for blown glass to his father, a glassmaker master. In 1984 after studying architecture for several years at Venice University, he began to work in his family?s glass business. During this period he was responsible for designing and developing new decorative glass features and objects. In 1998 he began a career as designer of lighting fixtures, in parallel with his other career as a freelance graphic artist in advertising. His research, which stems from the study of natural and organic elements, has reinterpreted the traditional, classic form of the Venetian chandelier in a contemporary vein, developing modern solutions that are increasingly free from convention. This is how he conceived Blum, an abundance of glass vases like sunrays burst out of a chrome-plated metal sphere, densely covering its surface to form a five-lobed flower that forms an impressive "blossom of crystal".View other products by Marcello Furlan
