The original maestro of light, Mario Nanni is the forward-thinking founder behind Italian-based Viabizzuno, a globally recognised architectural lighting firm that proudly designs and manufactures its state-of-the-art products in Italy. Mario Nanni firmly believes that “architecture is a projection of light,” and all too often, light is a corrective measure to hide or improve something that has already taken shape. “Light is a fundamental part of the architecture, so it is essential to design the right light,” Mario says. Viabizzuno honours its Italian craftsmanship, which is backed by precision-based research. “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,” Mario says.
