Nemo is the Italian lighting company behind some of the most recognizable light fixtures in the industry. Known for its modern and innovative takes on classic forms, Nemo’s most popular pieces include the Crown chandelier, Nuvola pendant lamp and the TRU floor lamp. They are icons of exceptional design and craftsmanship, which have made them favorites in the design world for decades. In fact, the TRU floor lamp was selected for the 2015 Excellent Product Design Award and the ADI Design Index Compasso d’Oro. Nemo was founded in 1993 by Franco Cassina and Carlo Forcolini in Meda, Italy as the official lighting division of Cassina S.p.A. Its conceptual roots are very much based in the “Golden Age” of Italian lighting of the 1960s and 70s, which was dominated by the Italian modernist Franco Albini. In this way, Nemo is very much an Italian company with Italian design influences and sensibilities. Over the last 25 years, Nemo has worked with a wide array of designers, including Carlo Forcolini, Jehs + Laub, Javier Mariscal, Karim Rashid, Ilaria Marelli, Foster+Partners, Hannes Wettstein and Roberto Paoli. These collaborations have yielded a stunning collection of modern lighting fixtures including chandeliers, wall lamps, floor lamps, outdoor lighting and more.
