Founded in 1945 by Giuseppe Ostuni (1907–1994), O-luce is the oldest Italian design company still operating in the lighting world, a unique production excellence which translates passionate aesthetic and technological research into the potential of light into actual form. Over the years, O-luce has succeeded in building a collection structured like a tale, rich and multifaceted, inhabited by products that transcend fashion to become Italian design icons. Volume 1 is the story of Giuseppe Ostuni and his designers, the history of the company and the lightings produced (480 pages & 642 illustrations.). This volume will provide a lot of new information not only on the lighting but further more on the designers involved, in particular Joe Colombo, which will open a completely new chapter on him.
