Slamp Lamps by Famous Designers
Modern interior has long ceased to be the way of improvement of comfort. It has turned into a competition for a new technology and more unusual design solution. Slamp lightings are «on the crest of the wave” in the modern design, as they are created only by recognized masters like Zaha Hadid or Alessandro Mendini, who are working with new materials and original shapes.

Roberto Ziliani has founded the Slamp company in 1992, deciding to create affordable, designer and just great lightings. The first model, a cylindrical floor lamp Tube, became the flagship of the company. The designer used new technologies for its creation. In particular, the lamp was made of opalflex, a polymer mixture, which is spectacular as glass, and flexible as plastic. Later the material was patented by Slamp.
In 1996, Slamp lamps were designed by legendary Mendini. He coordinated the art project Atelier with participation of Anna Gili, Randy Kristers and many other artists. By the way, Slamp regularly collaborates with creative people. Since its founding the company worked with dozens of leading illustrators and designers, both famous and not. However, one of those unknowns was Adriano Rachele, a young designer , who joined the Slamp team, when he was 23 years old. He became the one, who brought the coveted prize of the Red Dot festival for his ceiling lamp Veli, designed for Slamp.

Now Slamp lamps are recognizable and loved around the world. They are used for design of public spaces, offices, restaurants and private apartments. The company is actively developing and now aims to create a cultural platform, in which innovative ideas can be implemented. Among the latest collections there are works by Zaha Hadid – Avia & Aria fixtures, structural and dynamic pendant lamps in white and black. They are made of the same opaflex patented by Slamp in the very beginning.
By the way, during 20 years of its activity, Slamp has created some other unique materials, as Crystalflex, Steelflex, Lentiflex and other. They are distinguished by their flexibility, lightness, sustainability and immaculate appearance.
