Slamp – Lights „made in Italy“ since 1994
Ever seen a commercial of Slamp? No? That is no surprise since the Italian manufacturer of design lights, which was established in 1994 by Roberto Ziliani, needs almost no advertising to sell its extremely popular lights and lamps successfully all over the world.
„I want to create something innovative and important in the field of design lights”: That was the guiding principle of Roberto Ziliani when he established Slamp. And he has lived by that philosophy till this day and has established his company in Rome as one of the worldwide leading specialists for unusual, exclusive and high-value designer lights
Slamp owes its unique fascination to the interplay between shape and colour on the one side and power of inventiveness and creativity on the other, resulting in an impressing special reception of the viewer. As one of the leading Italian manufacturer of design lights, Slamp places highest demands on materials, processing and quality and so defines a standard which is second to none. 2001 the Italians became even sort of a common cultural asset, when the Italian post decided to include a lighting concept by Massimiliano Datti into its stamp series „Design Made in Italy“Slamp: Innovative materials Progressive shapes = Sophisticated decoration
Further prominent designers like Riccardo Dalisi, Alessandro Mendini, Aldo Cibic or Nigel Coates, the director of the architectural department of Royal College of Arts in London, gave free rein to their creativity and provided the constructers of Slamp with an artistic basic idea. That has always been the decorative starting point for the manufacture of lights and lamps made by Slamp. In so doing, the lamp manufacturer makes no concessions and uses only exclusive, extraordinary and high value materials of natural and technical origin. Genuine leather and noble wooden components are also applied as crystals by Swarovski and nickel plated brass and flawless polished stainless steel. But the Italian lights producer also develops materials by itself: Opalflex, a recyclable plastic of polymers and specific additives with unique properties for light diffusion patented by Slamp, creates an opalescent and appealing effect like glass does, and at the same time is as versatile and break-proof as plastic. Cristalflex is ideal for lights weighing not too much. On the one side it offers the same transparency and brilliance as glass, on the other side it convinces by less weight and more versatility. Steelflex features a reflective surface and pleases due flexibility and bendability – perfect for mirror-like lights and lamps.
But Slamp wouldn’t lead worldwide, if the Italians relied only on material and design. A consistent quality control through all production phases ensures highest possible lighting standards. Only lights which have been most carefully assembled by hand can leave the manufactory in Rome as recognized Slamp lights. Slamp lights – timeless product design
