It all started in a small laboratory in the historical centre of the Italian town of Piacenza during the late 1980s. Davide Groppi was inventing and producing his first lamps and decided simply to use his own name for the name of the company.
Creative independence and passionate, unconventional management have allowed him, over time, to learn and develop his own brand of original and unique products, currently distributed the world over. Simplicity, weightlessness, emotion and creative invention are the fundamental components of each lamp or lighting project designed by Davide Groppi.
Over the course of many years of experience, Davide Groppi has developed various products and shows in collaboration with companies specialising in design such as De Padova, Boffi, Paola Lenti and Christofle. There have also been many international projects the world over, including the illumination of houses, stores and museums. Davide Groppi has been particularly active in the area of hospitality (hotels and restaurants).
Some of the most famous chefs in the world have chosen lighting solutions by Davide Groppi for their venues, including Massimo Bottura, Massimiliano Alajmo, Moreno Cedroni and Giancarlo Perbellini.
