While continuously redefining the notion of artistic contemporary lighting, Terzani has been uniting a deeply rooted heritage of traditional Italian craftsmanship with generations of innovative designers, concepts and technologies for more than 40 years. It was in Florence, in 1972, when creative entrepreneur Sergio Terzani founded his eponymous company and embarked on a quest to create lighting that embraces art, luxury and design. Now under the guidance of Sergio and his son Nicolas Terzani (CEO and Creative Director), the company is ushering in a new era of lighting through Terzani Lab, an internal development department that explores innovative ideas, materials and solutions.
Led by a single phrase, "everything is light", Terzani has emerged as an international collective, where the world's leading designers juxtapose the artisanal with the cutting-edge, to transform glass, metal and other materials into meticulously crafted sculptures that illuminate and inspire. Via collaborations with top architectural, interior and product designers such as Bruno Rainaldi, Dodo Arslan, Nigel Coates, Maurizio Galante, Studio 14, Luca Martorano + Mattia Albicini, Christian Lava, Simone Micheli, and many more, the company is redefining the future of lighting with its experimental approach.
Distinctive collections express the brand's handcrafted-meets-high-tech ethos in diverse ways. The Memory Collection bridges past and present. Originating from legendary partnership with Parisian designer Jean-Francois Crochet that began in 1985, Memory unites traditional materials like wrought iron, wood and scavo glass with contemporary lines, resulting in luxe modern luminaires with a warm, authentic character.
The PreciousDesign Collection expands the boundaries of traditional luxury via exquisite materials, exuberant modern aesthetics and avant-garde technologies. Nicolas himself designed one of PreciousDesign's top-selling product families - Mizu - transforming clear 24% lead crystal pendants into mesmerizing watery reflections and refractions. This collection reshapes not just how one "sees" light, but also experiences shadow and motion: Light becomes "sculpture" and an immersive, interactive form of art.
Together, Memory and PreciousDesign embody Terzani's commitment to the evolution of luxury lighting.
As the President and Creative Director of Terzani, Nicolas Terzani defines their creative vision as a process rather than a specific design direction. Through experimenting with even the most familiar materials, Terzani is able to open up new ways to use them.
Born in 1974 in Florence, Italy, Nicolas was raised in the Terzani family's creative culture. His style is emblematic of the Terzani brand, which is known for combining artisan techniques and luxurious materials with experimental, cutting edge manufacturing processes. The results of this labor-intensive practice are unique, expressive designs. Nicolas often designs with the global market in mind, namely looking for products or objects that can be improved or are missing from the industry. A graduate of the European Business School in Paris, Nicolas currently lives in Florence.
His unique, original, meticulously handcrafted designs are constantly evolving.View other products by Nicolas Terzani
