Classic Italian Lighting from Venice

March 29, 2010

Discovered via Farmhouse Modern: the work of Aldo Bernardi, a lighting designer located in Paderno del Grappo, just northwest of Venice, Italy.

Bernardi produces classically detailed, hand-finished lighting for indoors and outdoors, using porcelain, brass, and copper parts; we especially like Bernardi’s cast brass switches, connectors, and boxes that evoke lighting from an earlier era. To find a dealer in the US, go to Ollier Distributors (the line is also available at Lunaria in Northern California).
