Roberto Ziliani founded SLAMP in 1994 with the goal of bringing something new to the Italian design scene. Since the beginning, the company has offered high-quality lamps and lighting solutions with an evident eye for detail that helps ensure the quality of the production methods.
The SLAMP collection offers a range of lamps and lighting designs for all generations, each with a groundbreaking and experimental twist. In partnership with a plethora of designers, SLAMP has been granted multiple international design awards, and in May 2012, the company received the Red Dot prize for its Veli collection.
Young designers are the backbone of SLAMP, as they ensure that all designs released by the company are inspired and forward-thinking. These designers think outside the box, use alternative materials and help set the trends of the future.
SLAMP has grown steadily throughout its lifetime and is now one of the most representative brand names as far as decorative lighting designs are concerned. The company is a point of reference for everyone who wants to own something coveted, original and exclusive.
It is in the very DNA of SLAMP to be curious and experimental and its designers work with a range of technical solutions that keep the company ahead of the game. Over time, SLAMP has become one of the best-known brand names for decorative light solutions.
