Established in 1945, by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. Their fixtures have been created by renowned Italian and international lamp designers, which are at the cutting edge of the interior design world. With international design awards dating back to 1956, many of their products are on permanent display in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
Oluce's products have contributed to the history of lamp design through the genius of designers like Vico Magistretti, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso and, more recently, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Toni Cordero, Marco Romanelli, Francesco Rota and Oki Sato, also known as Nendo.
