The company was founded in 1962 as a lamp manufacturer, founded by Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina in Merano. Very soon the two designer brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni began to collaborate with the brand, followed by Tobia Scarpa. Under the guidance of Sergio Gandini in the 1960s, the brand became known, grew and opened its first international branch in Germany. Today the company's designers create luminous objects with life and excitement, seeking harmony between functionality and aesthetics. Having become one of the most prominent lighting brands in the world, it is a symbol of iconic products and art.
