This movement was active between 1928 and 1958, afterward it merged into the International Modern Movement and had among its founders leading artists such as Eileen Gray, Charlotte Perriand, Jacques Adnet – whose table lamp QUADRO designed in 1929 is still produced by LCI – and Pierre Chareau to whom the MCP lamp was dedicated (Merci Chareau Pierre) which in 1979 had a great commercial success and became part of the permanent collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Laudarte: born thirty years ago from the deep passion for fashion and design of famous Milanese family Fiorucci, it is today recognized all over the world as a synonym of luxury and excellence of Made in Italy in lighting and interior decoration. Luxury, preciousness and elegance are written in Laudarte DNA: the first models of lamps are in fact inspired by the most distinctive elements of the eighteenth-century Baroque style, where the opulence of precious materials, the luminous splendor of gold, the refinement of lines that develop in spirals give life to unique creations, such as the lamp Ulmus, one of Laudarte’s most iconic pieces.
