ZAVA was founded in 1982 thanks to the creative talent and visionary energy of its owner, Franco Zavarise. Since then, ZAVA’s story has been one of ongoing achievement, built on strong, deep-rooted values that contribute to its unique manufacturing capacity. Today, the company can be considered a true master of 100% Italian production.

Following his natural instinct for design, from the outset, Franco Zavarise combined his extensive experience in metalworking with a great passion for lighting. 

At his plant, traditional craftsmanship and the latest technology go hand in hand, while the work outlined by the latest-generation machinery is modelled thanks to skilled, irreplaceable manual processing. This combination results in a varied collection of lighting products, whose distinctive features are a focus on design, creativity and great attention to detail. A collection of lamps with a clear-cut personality, whose uniqueness lies in the blend between the hardness, consistency and expressive power of iron and the impalpable lightness of light.
