Meet Davide Groppi, a renowned lighting designer who began his career in Italy in the late 1980s. Known for his original and globally distributed lamps and lighting projects, Groppi infuses his creations with simplicity, emotion, and a touch of magic. Drawing inspiration from art and everyday objects, he sees light as a medium for seduction and excitement. Collaborating with design specialists worldwide, Groppi's work spans various spaces and has earned him prestigious awards, including recognition from the ADI Compasso d'Oro Awards.

It all started in a small laboratory in the historical centre of the Italian town of Piacenza during the late 1980’s. Davide Groppi was inventing and producing his first lamps and decided simply to use his own name for the name of the company. Creative independence and passionate, unconventional management have allowed him, over time, to develop his own brand of original and unique products, currently distributed the world over. Simplicity, weightlessness, emotion, creative invention and amazement are the fundamental ingredients of each lamp or lighting project designed by Davide Groppi. His creations come about through the need to give life to something that is necessary or significant. The things that inspire these ideas are works of art, ready made objects, magic, the desire to make things with his hands or simply the urge to play and have fun with light. Light, for Davide Groppi, is a wonderful way to seduce and excite. Over the course of many years, Davide Groppi has developed products, projects and shows in collaboration with companies specialising in design. There have also been many international projects the world over, including the illumination of houses, stores, museums, restaurants.

Abstraction, purity, graphic sign.
The projected reduction of Infinito.
The disc appears enigmatic, the symbolic presence of the absence of light.
