When it comes to decorative lighting fixtures in contract applications, no brand is more widely known than Contardi. With over 30 years of experience in the business, the company has been labelled as “the couturier of contemporary lighting” and the most reputable source of bespoke lighting.
Some of the world’s finest hotels have a Contardi lighting or two. And, working in collaboration with some of the world’s popular brands – B&B Italia, Lumina, Quattrifolio, and the Giorgio Armani Group, their clientele has significantly grown. Catering to a wider market, their product range has also extended to include a variety of lighting solutions. One thing remains true, however, superb quality in every modern lighting produced.
The company started as Contardi Maria, founded in 1978 on the invitation of one of the forerunners of lighting technology in Italy, Stilnovo. Whatever complex machine processes that can’t be carried out in Stilnovo was entrusted to Contardi. With the patriarch’s history and reputation for making beautiful prototypes, the company thrived.
To date, the company has embraced other markets, bringing lighting to boats, homes, and villas. They continue to cater to the contract market, providing the best solutions for hotels all around the world.
In 2014, they opened a branch in New York, establishing a presence in one of the world’s principal nerve centres. They continue to join international tradeshows in both the hospitality and residential sectors as part of their operating strategy.
Contardi Design and Production
The company’s patriarch has been known to create prototypes that are likened to butterflies. They start out as caterpillars and then transforms into a thing of beauty. This is evident on how bespoke lighting comes to life more stunning than it first started out.
Contardi’s product design is not only based on what looks good and what works but how it fits in the environment based on the materials used and the need to create intelligent forms. Using state-of-the-art technology, the company produces high-quality lighting solutions that respond to the requirements of the modern times.
With a drive to go beyond fashion and focus on quality, features and customer needs, the company developed a discrete and unmistakable signature. Known for their flexibility in customisation, Contardi has become the brand that architects and interior designers trust when it comes to lighting with design aesthetics and the highest quality of standards.
The company differentiates itself in their ability to take care of processes, materials, and customers like nobody else can.
