Cini & Nils: Straight design lights with design lights with a recognition value.
The Cini & Nils company was established in 1969 by the designers Mario Melocchi and Franco Bettonica. The design team Cini&Nils made its first mark as a manufacturer of household items for offices and kitchens – such as letter openers, dispensers for herbs and spices and cutleries. A multitude of household accessories have been awarded prizes by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, where they can be admired.
Not until 1972 the company dedicated itself to the design of lights, but not without sticking to the field of accessories. So Franco Bettonica of Cini & Nils had the idea for a lighting project that represents a mixture of decoration and illumination: the Cuboluce light . The cubic light became a part of the Auerola collection, which helped Cini & Nils to become popular. The lamp, which is inside the box, is switched on and off by opening and closing the lid of the box. If the lid of the Cini &Nils Cuboluce is closed, it turns into a accessory integrating smoothly into the architectural design of your home.
Today, Cini Nils keeps focussing on the field of design lights. These lights impress by their hidden extravagance. At first sight, Cini & Nils ligths appear clear, simple and low-key. But at the second glance they display unusual details, interesting allusions and a fascinating design concept. So Cini Nils lights can be found in different rooms and interiors. They embellish living areas, corridors and sleeping rooms in your home, but also public places like offices, cafes and hotels. Cini&Nils lights have a special charm and recognition value. In this way, they give any room additional architectural elegance and an indistinguishable style.
A predilection for detail and careful research characterize the design of Cini & Nils. Each design of the Italians gets analyzed to the smallest detail, carefully researched, tested and shaped newly over and over again. The clear line of the lights can also be recognized in the application of geometrical forms such as circles, globes, cylinders or cubes. This predilection comes to perfection in the Cini & Nils Cuboluce. But the Cini&Nils Gradi , Componi and Convivio also follow strictly this pattern. So this long-established company stands for innovative ideas, characteristic design features and a symbiosis of design and functionality.
