Luciano Cesaro & Fabio Amico
Luciano Cesaro is an Italian designer. He designed almost the complete collection of Tre Ci/Luce lamps in the 90s. Among others, the Airel, Alien, Slice, Skyline, Solaris, Vega and Nube. No information te be found about Fabio Amico. Together with Luciano Cesaro he designed the Vega and the Skyline lamps for Tre Ci/Luce.
Tre Ci/Luce, literally translated as three there light, was established in the early seventies (1973) to produce lighting designs for domestic interiors with an emphasis on the search for style as a mix between form and innovative technical functions, creating products with an immediate visual impact that are pleasant additions to any atmosphere.
“High-quality looks, state-of-the-art materials and a careful study of both light sources and energy efficiency ensure that the essence of light is maximally controlled and exploited.”
“Custom made thanks to its own competence, skills and flexibility, Tre Ci/Luce manufactures special products on a daily basis, mainly on indication of specifiers. The changes can have different levels of complexity: from specific finishes, as particular RAL colours, to a change of the wattage’s of the light sources; from the addition of emergency units to the development of products with different types of installation, up to real and proper custom-made fixtures, studied and developed in order to find the best solution to meet the needs of the specifier.”
As told on their, now disappeared (treciluce.com) website.
