We are a young company with a long history.
Our first Contardi branded product dates back to 2006, thereafter the company began to constantly grow year after year, and the expansion has consolidated in the last six years. Contardi is now a well-established company headquartered in the Brianza district – the beating heart of the “Made in Italy” manufacturing.
Before then, Contardi had a 30-year history of successful collaborations, providing its lighting expertise to some of the most iconic companies on the Italian design scene.
It all started from the creative genius of Michele Carcano, who had a real passion for prototypes and worked for Stilnovo – one of the first companies to build a reputation as a lighting designer.
Fast-forward to today, and Michele Carcano’s heirs – Achille and Paola Carcano – have taken the reins of the company, supported by a very close-knit team, more similar to an extended family working together, with some of its members having been part of it since its inception.
Contardi is now synonymous with service, quality and flexibility, having become a reliable reference point for architects, interior decorators and lighting consultants who are in search of original and well-designed decorative and functional lighting as well as an unparalleled expertise and service.
