In the late 80’s in a little workshop in the historical centre of Piacenza, Davide Groppi started inventing and producing his first lamps using his own name as brand.
Creative independence and passionate management have allowed him to develop original and unique products, currently distributed the world over. Simplicity, weightlessness, emotion, creative invention and amazement are the fundamental components of each lamp or lighting project.
Davide Groppi creations come about through the need to give life to something that is necessary or significant. Light, for Davide Groppi, is a wonderful way to seduce and excite.
Over the years, the company developed international projects in collaboration with design companies, including the illumination of houses, stores, museums and restaurants of the most famous and decorated chefs in the world.
Davide Groppi has been recognised for excellence by the press and received prestigious awards, including the Edida Award, in 2011, for the Sampei lamp; the Design Plus Award, in 2014, for the Neuro lamp; the two awards at the 23rd edition of the ADI Compasso d’Oro Awards for the Nulla lamp and for the Sampei lamp; the 24th edition of the ADI Compasso D’Oro Mention of Honour Award for TeTaTeT rechargeable battery lamp. The ADI Compasso d’Oro Award is considered the oldest and most prestigious recognition for design in the world. As part of the “Quirinale Contemporaneo” project, inaugurated in 2019, Sampei and Origine floor lamps light up the Quirinal Palace, in particular the “Studio alla Vetrata”, one of the President of the Republic’s offices, and the “Prima Sala di Rappresentanza” respectively. Origine also enriches the interiors of the Italian Embassy to the Holy See for the initiative “Contemporanei a Palazzo Borromeo”.
