It all started in a small laboratory in the historical centre of the Italian town of Piacenza during the late 1980’s. Davide Groppi was inventing and producing his first lamps and decided simply to use his own name for the name of the company. Creative independence and passionate, unconventional management have allowed him, over time, to learn and develop his own brand of original and unique products, currently distributed the world over. Simplicity, weightlessness, emotion and creative invention are the fundamental components of each lamp or lighting project designed by Davide Groppi. Davide Groppi creations are never conceived as just lights or lamps. They come about through the need to give life to something that is necessary or significant. Some of the things that inspire these ideas are works of art, ready made objects, magic, the desire to make things with his hands or simply the urge to play and have fun with light. Light in the hands of Davide Groppi is a wonderful way to seduce and excite. Hi has always worked with a faithful group of collaborators who share his vision and help him to develop ideas and bring them to fruition.
