(France) – Joining 25-year-old Paris subsidiary, iGuzzini’s Lyon office offers place for meetings, networking and training dedicated to lighting community.
Italy-based lighting manufacturer iGuzzini has announced the opening of its new offices in Lyon, France.
When we talk about the city of Lyon, we inherently talk about light. Light is celebrated in this city as a regular occurrence, not only during the famous Festival of Lights held every year in the beginning of December. This event brings together millions of international visitors, enlivening the culture and beauty of the city.
The lighting community (lighting designers, architects, professionals and students) gets together in this city, and that is the reason why Lyon has become iGuzzini’s second home in France, joining the 25-year-old Paris subsidiary.
Choosing the location was easy. The nearby area of Croix Rousse is home to many lighting professionals, so iGuzzini found the ideal environment for its new venue in Place des Terreaux, a historic building, very accessible and close to the City Hall.
In Paris, iGuzzini offers a fully-equipped showroom located in close proximity to the Bastille. In Lyon, the company adds a place for meetings, networking, working and training dedicated to the lighting community that is large and active in this city.
The new offices occupy three levels. On one of the floors there is a dark room dedicated to light in all its forms: workshops and experiences, discovery and handling of the products that made iGuzzini successful. The main floor, serving as a meeting and greeting area, expands into a magnificent terrace overlooking the square, and offering stunning views of the Capital of Lights. Finally, the top floor houses the offices of the technical sales team that will support specifiers with their lighting projects.
The Rhone-Alpes region has always been a priority in the development of iGuzzini France. Several local distribution partners have been supporting iGuzzini’s efforts to make this happen for a long time.
Numerous projects have been completed in this area, including the Museum of Fine Arts, whose entrance is located in the Place des Terreaux.
This is an additional building block for the actors of the world of light: lighting designers, architects, interior designers, urban planners, landscape architects, design offices, students, etc.
