History

In 1969 we started our operation in Torà, in the province of Lleida, producing hand forged lighting.

From the start of the 21st century, we have focused our lighting on contemporary design and incorporating new technologies.

The introduction of the LED to the world of lighting in 2008 brought about a great revolution and opportunity for design and development of products and projects.
