iGuzzini, established in 1959, makes indoor lighting and outdoor lighting luminaires, and is now the leading Italian company in the lighting design sector and one of the leaders in Europe. Its headquarters are in Recanati, in Italy’s Marches region, and extend over 150,000 square metres.
It belongs to the Finanziaria Mariano Guzzini (Fimag) holding company, owned by the Guzzini families, heirs of Mariano Guzzini, who are in charge of the companies: F.lli Guzzini, iGuzzini, Teuco. Initially the young Guzzini brothers worked on their new venture only in the evenings after they had completed their shifts at Fratelli Guzzini.
Today, production is split into indoor lighting and outdoor lighting luminaires. And, since designing indoor lighting and outdoor lighting requires a knowledge of all aspects linked to the quality of the lighting environment, on these subjects iGuzzini also collaborated with researchers, doctors, sociologists, physicists, from major international research bodies such as: Harvard University (Cambridge), M.I.T. (Boston), "La Sapienza" University (Rome), Milan Polytechnic, Italy’s Preservation and Restoration Institute, Lighting Research Center (Troy, NY).
Products were designed in collaboration with leading architects and designers, such as: Giò Ponti, Rodolfo Bonetto, Bruno Gecchelin, Renzo Piano, Norman Foster, Gae Aulenti, Piero Castiglioni, Jean Michel Wilmotte, to name just a few.
