Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. For many years Oluce was one of only three design companies to dominate the Italian scene, creating a hub for the designers who strongly engaged first in the reconstruction and later in the birth of series production. These designers, which included Vittoriano Viganò and BBPR, Gigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella, Marco Zanuso and Joe Colombo, animated the Milanese forum. To this day Oluce continues to attract young designers from around the world, creating innovative and iconic designs.

The Oluce Atollo has become one of the best know symbols of Italian design worldwide. Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979 and became, since then, part of the permanent collections of the world's major museum of design. The simple geometry of the design creates a luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed and to which nothing can be added.
