Marchetti present the Cometa
When it comes to bespoke lighting creations, Marchetti Lighting stand at the top of their field. With a hand-crafted ethos at the core of their very being, the company have developed a DNA structure for all working methods that continues to set them apart from the rest. For over forty years now Marchetti Lighting have been making style their very reason for being. Skillfully merging style with the entrepreneurial spirit that has always marked the family and its story. The brand have strong ties to their origins, upholding the belief that Made In Italy is a key value of quality and elegance. Marchetti Lighting is a brand that wears its heart on its sleeve. Depicting a hummingbird in their logo, the company share a number of traits with the winged creature. According to the brand, the hummingbird symbolises “liberty,” “energy,” and “tenacity,.” They continue to state that “regardless of its dimensions it follows its dreams, ideas and things that most would consider impossible.” This is exactly what Marchetti Lighting strive to do, pursuing and feeding on light to create the most brilliant designs you can find. Also like the hummingbird, Marchetti Lighting are in a constant evolution. They describe it as being “filled with the desire to move, innovate, and think of the future in a way that allows us to use our resources in the best possible way.” This translates as a brand always pushing their capabilities to the max, not simply making the use of the materials and technologies at their disposal, but using them to innovate and make sure their processes and results continue to stand among the most cutting edge on the market. “Imagination and passion are the wings that keep Marchetti flying high,” the brand state on their website, “only he who believes in his dreams can really fly.” Their story is an open book. Their passion for their craft and the dexterity of their artisan team are things Marchetti Lighting wear on their collective metaphorical sleeves. For Marchetti Lighting, the connection between design and expert craftsmanship has always been paramount. The brand strive to ensure premium results, experimenting on a large scale and thinking of all possible aspects of a project – from the first sketch of an idea to the product maintenance after installation. Shining out to a public that knows exactly what it wants, the brand have shared a video offering insight into all the processes that bring their designs to life. Combining a professional approach with longstanding family values, over their 50+ year history Marchetti Lighting have distinguished themselves among their contemporaries. Offering a broad range of bespoke lighting for any environment, the brand’s name has become synonymous with a unique quality. Using the most modern materials with the same hand crafted ethos they have always used, Marchetti Lighting have developed a DNA structure for all working methods. Thanks to their great attention to finishing, they are able to complete almost any plated or painted finish inside their factory. One sophisticated product to emerge from the Marchetti factory is the Cometa, a suspension lamp that fuses contemporary crystal with a distinctively nostalgic accent. Made up of Bohemian cut Italian crystals that shroud the linking metal structure in invisibility, and with a luminous light source, Cometa has a natural splendour impossible to ignore.
