Viabizzuno is one of the world’s most renowned lighting brands. As founder and designer, where did your passion for lighting stem from and what led you to create the Viabizzuno brand?
Mario Nanni: My passion for lighting began as a child, where I built nativity scenes for the Parish of Santa Maria in Bizzuno, Italy. I found lighting solutions to effectively reproduce the daylight and I was instantly fascinated.
In 1994 I founded Viabizzuno, as I felt there wasn’t a company in the world that, rather than dealing mainly with design, wanted to put lighting first and treat it as a key element of the architecture. Today, we are a world leader in our industry because we accept the different challenges that architects and lighting designers face in their projects. Our aim is to dream of things that do not exist and try to achieve them.
