Since its founding in Florence, Italy in 1972, Terzani S.R.L. has worked to meld traditional Italian craftsmanship with modern technology to create lighting that blurs the lines among art, luxury and design.
Founder, Sergio Terzani, and CEO, Nicolas Terzani, have furthered their experimentation in lighting design with the creation of the Terzani Lab, where new materials, techniques and ideas can be developed and tested. And Terzani continues to commission designs from renowned artists including Nigel Coates, Maurizio Galante, Christian Lava and Dodo Arslan who add their unique voices contribute to Terzani's extensive collection.
With their most recent and highly celebrated collection, Terzani has taken the next step in its evolutionary process - building from its position as an industry leader to create an incubator for the future of lighting where Terzani can focus on new ideas and continue to redefine the way luxury lighting is made.
We no longer march in a straight line. Our lives are dynamic, intertwining collections of relationships, experiences and journeys. Reflecting the fluidity of our generation, designer Simone Micheli has created a new, contemporary light for Terzani Doodle. Like us, each Doodle is unique each pendant is handcrafted by artisans to resemble a randomised path. And, to give us control over the journey we want to take, each led bulb can be placed anywhere on the light, not only reflecting the choices we make in life, but giving Doodle a special flexibility. Design Simone Micheli.
