Cini & Nils: suspension, table, wall and floor lamps
Cini & Nils was born in Milan in 1969 from the genius of Franco Bettonica and Mario Melocchi, well-known designers who decided to create illuminating objects and direct them to the target audience.
This company transforms ideas into products with attention to the smallest details and cutting-edge that exploit LED technology, all with the utmost attention to environmental sustainability. Not only that, Cini&Nils also aims to ensure the well-being of man; there is in fact the Research & Development laboratory that analyzes and selects the best technologies to avoid stress and optical annoyances.
The company policy has always been based on: experience, collaboration and search for the best solutions. All the collections, in fact, are the result of the work of expert designers who make use of cutting-edge machinery.
Since its inception, Cini&Nils has also distinguished itself internationally with its innovative products; we find, in fact, some bar and table sets, revolving magazine racks and game tables made in the early 1970s and exhibited in the permanent collections of the MoMA in New York. The turning point, however, came in 1972 with the Cuboluce project, created by Franco Bettonica, thanks to which the company entered the world of lighting, becoming a point of reference for those who work in the sector.
The designers of Cini & Nils
To achieve even better results, Cini & Nils makes use of the contribution of expert designers. For example, we find Luta Bettonica (graduated in Industrial Design at the European Institute of Design, artistic director since 2002 and president of Cini & Nils since 2013), Giancarlo Leone (architect graduated from the Milan Polytechnic, in 1996 he began his collaboration with Luta Bettonica ), Alessandro Scandurra (designer known in Italy and abroad, visiting professor at SUPSI in Switzerland), Christiane Beer (German artist and sculptor; she also exhibited her works in the new Bocconi University in Milan and in Piazza San Carlo in Varese as well as various museums in Germany), Alessandro Ciffo (master in creating silicone artifacts, works that constitute a perfect combination of art and design).
Lighting is a fundamental aspect to take into consideration when furnishing an environment, as it helps to change the perception of space and why not also the appearance of the room itself. For this reason, at the basis of the realization of a lamp there are awaited studies on the choice of raw materials and on the projects of the various products, aspects for which Cini & Nils is a leader in the sector.
Table lamps, Cubo Luce Led, innovation and design
Table lamps can be considered as real ornamental objects, as well as lighting generators. They are, in fact, positioned as if they were knick-knacks on bedside tables, desks, tables, etc. It is therefore necessary to choose a lamp with a design that suits the surrounding furniture and with a source of lighting suitable for the environment in which it is placed.

Wall lamps, ceiling lights, interior lighting
Unlike table lamps, wall lamps do not have a support base because they are fixed to the wall. They are usually chosen to illuminate small rooms as they take up little space. Also in this case the lamps take on the role of ornamental element, consequently the attention to detail is fundamental.

Chandelier Suspensions lamps, modern and design
Chandeliers often dominate the scene in the various environments where they are placed, as they have a ceiling attachment that allows lighting from above and providing equally diffused lighting.
