In a charming atelier just outside Rome, spanning 8,000 square metres, Slamp weaves a compelling story of light. With a focus on aesthetics and ethics, they craft lighting using exclusive materials and sustainable technology.

One can choose between white or velvet modules and spots. Keep it simple or mix and match for a striking look.
