On June 27th 1996, while the mathematician Andrew Wiles won the Wolfskehl prize (thanks to the resolution of the last of Fermat’s theorems) in Italy – more precisely between Venice and Treviso – Axolight was being established. The brand came to life with the clear aim of demonstrating to the world that the right combination of know-how, manual skills, and materials can not only lighten up, but enliven settings lacking natural sunlight.

Deviating from the standard approach of other lighting manufacturers at the time, Axolight began to interpret the ancient need to characterize living spaces by introducing harmonious sources of light.

Today, Axolight is happy to address a demanding niche of clients. The brand has experienced significant growth over the past two decades – spreading over 90 countries where it offers products and services, and continues to propose its own interpretation of objects, spaces, and light.

At the root of the company’s success is the creativity, knowledge, manual skills, and passion of over 40 people, working in both the Italian headquarters and the US branch. Axolight’s team members test their intellectual skills on a daily basis to astonish themselves, as well as the outside world, through the realization of new and innovative lamps.
