DE MAJO was founded at the end of II World War by the will of a Neapolitan who moved to Venice willing to capture the spirit of those years of formal rebirth and renewed productive ferment.
The origin of the company was and still is the Murano Island where over the years grows by feeding on the collaboration of experienced and enthusiastic workforce, by feeding on the innovative capacity of artists and designers able to capitalize on a culture steeped in the tradition and experience. Over all looms the personality of the founder, Guido de Majo, model of entrepreneurial vision. Large values which after 65 years of business characterize the company's vision are the result of those ingredients.
The bases of the guiding principles are Ethics and Art.
Ethics for DE MAJO declines primarily in the desire to not override the reasons of others, in the belief that feelings should be respected, that the diversity is a value could never be a limit. For us, Ethics is also declined in the care of the land, the welfare of all, the air around us, so dear and fragile waters of the ecosystem of the Venetian lagoon.
In this way art and design compare and merge. A combination that is self-sustaining and complementary, a combination of loyalty to the stylistic rigor and freedom of interpretation.
For us, the Art consists in the need to assert the ability to express a concept through a simple artifact so that can radiate charm and emotion.
For DE MAJO the "sign" is almost more important than design: simple lines, formal balance and proportion research are the hallmarks of the lamps that are born from the genius of the designers that perceive with startling immediacy the aesthetic and artistic vision of the company. The taste for beauty, understood as inner harmony, blends with the explicit one belonging to our creations- making that way the combination of art and aesthetics: the visionary element of the company.
Art for us is above all the joy of "doing", as the poetry of everyday life, distilled immediacy that should not resort to interpretive acrobatics. Art as a message of good will, commitment and memory for future generations.
