The Globe pure geometries co-exist in a constant balance between shape and functionality: the transparent blown-glass sphere contains the cylindrical metal reflector that projects its timeless light into space.
Prolific Italian architect and designer Joe Colombo, born Cesare Colombo, believed in democratic and functional design, meant to be used in many different ways - all for the benefit of the user. Ahead of his time, Colombo relied on emerging material and the latest technologies to design futuristic “machines for living”, many of which have become icons.
Many of his works have been exhibited and included in the most important collections of museums around the world.
Oluce is the only Italian lighting design brand that has been operating uninterruptedly since its establishment in 1945 and that, since the beginning, has assumed itself as the most avant-garde. By the hand of the master founder Giuseppe Ostuni, the brand has assumed itself as a refuge for the most creative, innovative and irreverent designers.
Oluce's transition to the 21st century follows the same principles outlined by Ostuni, and Oluce continues to house the most inventive designers, in a path of technological and aesthetic research that is reinventing and expanding lighting design.
