OLEV’s art direction is now in the capable hands of Marc Sadler. The winner of 4 Compasso d’Oro Awards signed the brand new designer LED lamps collection, which will be presented at Euroluce,
Sadler has a background in the sports domain, where the research of the materials is extremely important and the control of the manufacturing processes is a key asset. This experience allowed him to translate a precise industrial approach and extensive technical expertise into different areas, where design is traditionally more oriented towards the attention to shapes. Sadler’s involvement actually went beyond the mere creative intervention and spread to the entire manufacturing organization. From the design of the products to the design of the process, to achieve modular components and optimize the production, with a view to the rationalization of the collections and greater coherence in the offer, to support the international brand positioning. The result of Sadler’s work will be unveiled at Euroluce 2019: 4 new product families, more than 70 lighting fixtures.
