Ignasi Riera

Several Ignasi Riera exists. But about the designer of this lamp there is no information to be found. Two well known Ignasi Riera are Joan Ignasi Riera Mas, a designer and architect from Barcelona, but he is too young. Maybe it was his father or a family member who designed this floor lamp. Ignasi Riera i Gassiot is a writer, journalist, lecturer and parliamentarian born in 1940, also from Barcelona, Spain.

Llum

Llum, which means light in Spanish, was a lighting company from Barcelona, Spain. Unfortunately no information to be found, except for some lamps from the 70’s and 80’s online. Do you have more info about the company? Please use the contact form and make this website more complete.

Today another lighting company exists with the name Llum, but it is a Dutch firm founded by Godert Schouten. It has nothing to do with the Spanish company.

Of course the name Llum is widespread in Spain. For instance, Llum in Barcelona is a festival of light in February that aims to counter the darkness of winter with the splendour of light.

Several lighting shops use Llum in their name in the city. To name a few: Drac de Llum, Viva Llum, Energia de Llum, La Llum de la Vila.
