Franco Cassina and Carlo Forcolini founded the manufacturer Nemo in 1993. Only a year later the emergent company celebrated their first big success with the table lamp Iota. The idea for this unusual luminaire was penned by the Japanese designer Ikaru Mori. With the Constellation lighting system and the Regulus floor lamp Nemo unwaveringly continued their success. Remarkable is the increasing orientation towards more simple and straightfoward design ideas, which can nonetheless (and because of it) generate an enormous effect. Paired with high quality manufacturing processes the Nemo-minimalism appears graceful and elegant.
