Made in Italy, handcraft, design, and experimentation; these key points marked the start of Lumere, a new lighting company, born by the passion and the deep background of Ferdinando Ingenito.
SAY. DARE. LIGHT UP.
Lumere in a nutshell.
A life full of thrills and emotions. These are Ferdinando Ingenito’s origins, beginning in Florence as a school teacher, then quickly turning into an export manager for lighting companies. With this 45-year background he is still following his passion for lighting projects. A lot of love which made him starting his first company MITO in 1980, when, as a talent scout, Ferdinando Ingenito selected young architects and designers, as Ferruccio Laviani, Gordon Guillaumier, Vera Fraboni, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Terry Pecora, Enzo Berti going along with them and their talent. Many years later, Ferdinando Ingenito, after a period spent in USA, establishes a new lighting company FILED, whose name calls to mind the new era of LED. As a final destination of his long journey, in 2023 he begins a new adventure LUMERE, side by side with his son Luca.
LUMERE is a new design brand with all products totally Made in Italy.
Its mission is to match modern fashion style and everyday life, finding solutions for private and contract projects, with a special focus on rechargeable lamps expanding the traditional range to a larger one with many outdoor lamps and big dimensions items.
A day-dreamer disposition, joined at a strong attachment to his country of origin, make Ferdinando Ingenito a successful businessman. That’s allowed trusted partnerships with a wide network of “zero miles” artisans, each of them skilled in manufacturing special parts to be assembled to the main body totally produced by LUMERE in his factory at Nocera Inferiore (SA).
Extraordinary master craftsmen, men of few words and big accuracy, whose manual labor was essential for LUMERE first lamp collection, achieved under the artistic direction of architect Daniele Della Porta. The selected designers, Della Porta himself, Francesco Cappuccio, Angelo Ferrucci, Francesco Giannattasio and Luca Ingenito, expressed their own artistic language and vision, creating a rechargeable portable table lamp. This collection shows many different items, for indoor use, each of them with a different style and materisls: Daniele Della Porta, as creative director is still working in close contact with new designers, supported by LUMERE, in order to develop new innovative models and to enforce the brand identity, paying attention to all the production steps and communication campaign.
Every model of LUMERE’s first collection is cordless, thought to be used all around your home. Different projects, different materials: turned wood, metal, glass or natural stone: each one expresses a perfect balance between the design and the manufacturing. The assembly work is realized in the LUMERE main factory, where the technological concept is deeply analized and produced. The strong point of every project made by Ferdinando Ingenito is his deep knowledge of the engineering applied to lighting fixtures.
Ferdinando Ingenito, flanked by his son Luca and Daniele Della Porta, is planning a new collection of rechargeable lamps, but focusing on outdoor models with a bigger size. A new brand started his long path, but it’s just at its first steps.
