The Italian lighting manufacturer Contardi was founded in 2006 and is based in the Brianza region. But even before that, Contardi could look back on a 30-year history of successful collaborations, in which they made their lighting know-how available to some of the best-known companies on the Italian design scene. It all started with creative genius Michele Carcano, who had a real passion for prototypes and worked for Stilnovo - one of the first companies to make a name for itself as a lighting designer. Meanwhile, Michele Carcano's heirs - Achille and Paola Carcano - have taken over the reins of the company, supported by a very close-knit team, some of whose members have been part of Contardi since its inception.
Internationally known as the "Couturier of Contemporary Lighting", Contardi has earned over the years a reputation for a skilled tailoring approach, the variety of materials used, as well as the elegance of the finishes combined with the most innovative LED technology, all designed to ensure that the The quality of the lighting meets contemporary requirements.
Contardi works with international designers able to interpret and anticipate global trends in both the home and hospitality sectors, and above all to understand the evolution of housing in general, with a design that captures the joy of elegance as well as for expresses a specific function.

Today, Contardi aims to create products that are aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time.
