The term ecosustainability, which is widely used today, has always been an intrinsic part of Luceplan’s DNA. It is so deeply interiorized that it has not been emphasized, consistently with the company’s natural, instinctive attitude. Luceplan has always kept aloof from new but often empty proclamations. And in the sea of high-flown declarations and statements that abound in the world of design, Luceplan has a clear and precise vision of sustainability: “Design also focuses on easy, differentiated waste recovery and on weathering seasonal trends. It rationalizes the assembly process to compress packaging volume, and makes use of the ultimate, highly efficient light sources.”

Commitment for the environment has won Luceplan several international acknowledgements, numbering the European award Lights of the Future assigned to the table lamp Mix by Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto, which was also proposed by Legambiente for the prize Innovazione Amica dell’Ambiente, not to mention the presence of its fixtures in “green” buildings throughout the world, like the New York Times Building designed by Renzo Piano. The LED Berenice plays the protagonist on writing desks in its offices.

Formed in 1978, Luceplan cements the idea of three architects, Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto and Sandra Severi who wished to consolidate the experience developed during their long-standing collaboration with Gino Sarfatti, founder of Arteluce. He was an experimenter and acclaimed innovator in the sector of lighting fixtures. These are the noble roots, but the story doesn't follow a chronological sequence of events in the company’s growth, but rather ‘highlights’ constancies in its evolution. A history marked by well-defined constant factors from the very start – experimentation, research and quality, by a philosophy focused on creating “beautiful items for the public at large” and by an attitude, a discrete refinement that has never been lost over the years.

This is the mark left on lighting fixtures that have not been designed for short-lived wonder, but to be the natural outlet of a continuous, ongoing drive dedicated to the essence of every project, a fastidious care of detail and steady improvement. The result of this consistent experimentation that in turn implies skilled technological research. Passion for design and entrepreneurial courage is a Luceplan commitment, both with a considerable investment in production – the new trademark Elementi di Luceplan, a line of technical, architectural and contract lighting fixtures which was formed in 2006 - and in marketing. It has opened new international branches (Copenhagen joins New York, Paris and Berlin) and more self-brand stores.
