We spoke with the team at Slamp to find out more.
How and why did Slamp evolve?
Slamp was established in 1994 with the aim of creating something completely new in the Italian design arena: a business that could offer high quality lamps, where the artisan’s eye for detail would meet the excellence of industrial production. Since then, Slamp’s evolution has never stopped, and today we are recognized as one of the most representative brand names in the field of Italian decorative designer lighting. The success of Slamp is all in its DNA, based on a curiosity of experimentation with new materials and trust in one’s instinct, but always utilizing futuristic engineering solutions.
You work with very high profile designers as well as develop products of your own in-house - can you tell us more about these collaborations?
All our products are made with patented and innovative materials that make our range unique and immediately recognisable. Through a unique and interesting handmade production process, two-dimensional, patented materials are transformed into three-dimensional shapes. We have no boundaries in terms of forms, and this continues to attract a lot of professionals, including some of the greatest international designers, such as Mendini, Robert Wilson, Zaha Hadid, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Nigel Coates, Elisa Giovannoni and Zanini de Zanine. A perfect marriage between inspiration from the great masters and our passion is what guides the young designers of the Slamp Creative Team beyond the limits and can be seen time and time again.
