The design of the Veneta Lumi Lulù table lamp is based, to say the least, on the design of the Miss Sissi table lamp designed by Philippe Starck in 1990 and in production by FLOS since 1991. Another example of a “copy” can be found over here, it is named Lampada T.
The name Veneta Lumi says it all: lights made in the Veneto region in the north of Italy. The capital and the largest city is Venice.
Not much info is found about the Veneta Lumi company. It was active from the late seventies until the nineties. They produced many lamps in the at the eighties very popular Memphis style, made famous by Ettore Sottsass. In the beginning the name was Nuova Veneta Lumi. Nuova = new. It became Veneta Lumi in the eighties. They also used the name Laguna Light in the nineties, also referring to Venice. On this Lulù table lamp both names were used.
Veneta Lumi also sold lighting produced by other companies such as Massive from Belgium and Fisher Leuchten from Germany.
