Zafferano Ailati Lights
The brand Zafferano Ailati Lights groups up the former Ailati Lights and Zafferano Bespoke Glass Lighting collections of indoor and outdoor lighting, arranged in two product lines.
“I grew up amid the beauty of Venice and its enchanting lagoon. On the island of Murano, at the family-run glassworks, I learned to love glass, a delicate and powerful material. Throughout my business career, I have explored and understood the importance of light for human well-being.
My design philosophy is based on three cornerstones: the influence or Italian cultural and natural beauty, which has always inspired our design; respect for artisan talent, age-old know-how envied by the rest of the world: and the endless curiosity in pursuing the opportunities offered by cutting-edge materials and technologies. A combination of these factors has given rise to all my lighting projects, united by the constant commitment to create functional products with timeless aesthetic appeal.”
Zafferano Ailati Lights was established in 2005, when Federico de Majo returned to the lighting business, presenting a brand of indoor and outdoor luminaires that combine art of glass and technology, and are characterized by a specific identity in the decorative and technical fields.
All products integrate aesthetic research around elementary geometric shapes with the use of the most innovative new generation LED technological standards; and customizable, modular, bespoke models designed to light up public and private spaces, creating – through seductive decorative effects of light and color – spaces with a strong character.
Architectural is the line of outdoor and indoor technical lighting. The products stand out for their neutral colors and minimalist, clean-cut geometric lines, that allow for an easy incorporation in a variety of contexts with different styles.
Their design involves state-of-the-art technological standards: the use of new generation LED light sources; research into quick and simple assembly and fixing systems; the use of high-quality, long-lasting materials – such as diecast aluminum and opal glass combined with other materials.
Furthermore, outdoor lighting models are designed to achieve high IP ratings. All these features play an important role in improving the efficiency of luminaires, increasing the life and quality of light while optimizing operating costs, especially when large-scale lighting systems are installed.
The contract-furnishing sector is therefore the natural choice for these luminaires: private and public areas such as hospitality facilities, retail spaces and offices.
Decorative is the product line dedicated to interior decor lighting, specifically focused on creating tailor-made projects.
The catalogue collections – original, colorful and with a great personality – embody Federico de Majo’s thirty years of experience in designing lighting projects and artistic glassworks, which he acquired working for decades in Murano alongside the Masters glassblowers and driven by his passion and knowledge of Italian design. All models can be customized and include modular elements, allowing a multitude of creative solutions for designing small – and large – scale lighting installations.
All details, from color options to metal finishes, can be adapted and shaped to suit functional needs and tastes, thus creating endless variations in shape and composition.
These collections allow distinctly exclusive and striking interiors to be created, with eye-catching decorative effects of light and color. They can be perfectly incorporated in tailor-made lighting projects for hotels and large spaces.
