October 2010: Design Centre Chelsea Harbour

For the first time in the “temple” of London design, a space is entirely dedicated to an Italian lighting company.

August 2010: A Canadian stamp by Façon de Venise

This postage stamp, for all mail from Canada, features Bloom, one of the latest products from the Façon de Venise catalogue presented this year. The tailor-made postage stamp shown here at the side is the outcome of an original project by our distributor Franco Monastero, exclusively for Canada. His company Interlight, with its head offices in Hamilton, Ontario, has promoted the printing of a limited edition of 20,000 postage stamps, worth 54 cents of a dollar each, available from August. Bloom, the line by Danish designer Brian Rasmussen, which best represents the personality and identity of the Façon de Venise brand, was chosen for the image on the postage stamp. This commemorative postage stamp may even become a cult object for Canadian and other stamp collectors. In the meantime, we heartily wish to thank Franco Monastero, not only for the excellent results achieved in Canada but also for this creative promotional scheme for our products and our brand.

May 2010: The new "Light is life" campaign begins

A new advertising campaign has begun to promote the Façon de Venise brand. “Light is Life” is the advertising claim chosen to promote the dynamic and innovative style of the brand. We have started this project in the monthly magazine INTERNI, including a KING SIZE supplement, and in BRAVA CASA. The electrifying colours of Misstrass are the protagonists of the campaign inaugurated in the April issues to coincide with leading trade fair events. For Light4, this is an initial step in advertising investment intended to consolidate the brand and support the sales network. We will keep you up-to-date, in the months to come, on further planned issue.
