In 1979, Fausto Dalla Torre and his wife Luisa Martin establish Il Fanale a small workshop for producing lamps on the outskirts of Treviso. With the desire to create a traditional product of the highest quality, they use materials such as copper, brass and iron, which undergo a special oxidation process according to a formula that is still a family secret.
Having grown up in the company, Marzia and Tomas Dalla Torre inherit their parents' passion for lighting. In 2004, they are made welcome at Il Fanale, each one contributing with their own talents. After joining the company, the first collections in contemporary style are introduced alongside rustic style lamps. First comes the industrial line with its vintage origins, followed by the New Decò line, which enhances the antique charm of brass combined with glass. In 2015, Marzia becomes the company’s general manager, and Tomas the artistic director.
Design is a balancing act between shape, function and technology. But, above all, it is a game: without an aptitude for experimentation, it does not exist. Combining essentiality and decor, their design is the post-modern expression of a contemporary style that is always timeless.
