For more than 16 years now, Sotto Luce branded light fittings have been celebrated all over Europe for their style, geometric proportions and modern look. Although we insist on traditional manufacturing methods to ensure the highest level of product quality, our innovative designs have always remained on the very cutting-edge of home décor trends.
Sotto Luce was probably the first lighting brand to launch a 100% customisable lighting collection. Our customers are able to freely configure their own fittings by combining a variety of glass-shade colours, coloured cables, and metal hardware finishes.
Products straight from the makers
Here at Sotto Luce, our philosophy can be summed up in one word: people. We value the skills and craft of our employees and seek to meet the needs and desires of our customers. That is why Sotto Luce is so widely and justifiably renowned for its hand-blown and hand-decorated glass-shades, its hand-made textile and wooden shades, as well as the metal hardware produced on manually operated machines. All Sotto Luce products are made in Europe, and their components are provided exclusively by trusted European suppliers.
Our brand tells a story of what Sotto Luce products stand for, who made them and where they come from. Aware that customers feed off of quality, we give them something to love and the emails we have been receiving from them through all those years prove that this approach is the right one.
Quality over quantity
We do our best to deliver products that go above and beyond consumer expectation and contribute to sustaining communities of talented workers here in Europe.
Our obsessive attention to detail allows us to deliver an uncompromising level of quality. We think differently about scale by prioritizing careful, gradual growth, lower risk and reduced waste. We want to grow in accordance with demand. Rather than thinking about expansion we focus on sustainability.
It all started from development of proper glass blowing moulds and creation of the first prototypes of the Awa, Itteki, Momo, Myoo, Tama and Ume luminaires.
The Momo pendant light becomes a Distinguished Product of the Prodeco Product Design competition launched by Elle Decoration.
