The Mezzanotte by iGuzzini

Era: 1970s Origin: Italy

A retro wall light manufactured by the renowned Italian lighting company Harvey Guzzini, between 1974 and 1979. The thermoplastic lights have a shade which can be rotated 180 degrees to control the distribution of light, in the process creating feature up or downlighting.

Italy

Origin: Italy

The majority of Italian production is based in the industrialised north. Italy has a long tradition of well designed products which is just as true for the lighting industry - where the landscape is dominated by long established companies such as Artemide, Flos and iGuzzini. We often salvage and restore retro 1970s lights from this region, distinctively playful in their primary colours and simple forms that defined the era.

Restoration

Over the years, we’ve restored thousands of lights that would otherwise have become scrap - examining, refurbishing and updating one part at a time. But we don’t only piece together the light’s components. We take the time to investigate its history, studying old catalogues for clues and assembling the whole story.

iGuzzini

Manufacturer: iGuzzini

Unlike the majority of Italian production which is based in the north, iGuzzini is an established lighting manufacturer based centrally on the Adriatic coast. iGuzzini was founded by the six Guzzini brothers - Raimondo, Giovanni, Virgilio, Giuseppe, Adolfo and Giannunzio in the 1960s. The Guzzini company rebranded many times in the 20th century, going by, at various points - Harvey Creazioni, Harvey Guzzini, Guzzini, iGuzzini, and Illuminazione Guzzini. In the 1970s the company rebranded once more as iGuzzini—adding 'Illuminazione' in 1981. The company still exists today.

Genius Full Circle initative

Love the lights, love your ethos. Absolutely what more companies need to be doing. I have my Retro Czech Ceiling Lights (V2) in my dining room and the spray of light they give off is gorgeous and unusual.
