More New Releases from Contardi
It’s a momentous time for this Italian decorative and exterior lighting manufacturer. They began the year with a new logo and a new look, then got to work developing loads of new product launches, including several high-profile design collaborations and two new exterior lighting collections. Now, Contardi is ending the year with a major milestone: the opening of their first ever USA showroom in Manhattan. If you’re a Northern California or Hawaii-based designer planning travel to the East Coast, let us know–we would love to help you plan your visit to Contardi’s new space!
Stick and Contardi’s other new releases are available in the United States. Here’s a look at the other exciting and totally new Contardi fixtures now available to spec for Northern California and Hawaii interior and exterior design projects:
Designer: Massimiliano Raggi

Designer: Jan Van Lierde
The versatility, innovative spirit and cleverness of Contardi’s new Tenebra should come as no surprise–it was designed by Kreon‘s legendary founder, Jan Van Lierde! This new release adds a rechargeable IP65 suspension lamp to Contardi’s growing line of outdoor fixtures. Tenebra looks great configured with or without the optional durable synthetic crystal diffuser, which comes in three colors. Order it wired for a permanent, more traditional installation, or go for the battery-powered version, which recharges via a USB-C port and comes with a steel cable that makes it easy to hang the lamp from trees, arbors, awnings, etc.
We’re so excited for these playful new outdoor lamps! Designed by the team behind Contardi favorites like the island-inspired Calypso collection and their iconic Arcipelago lamps, Lagoon lamps are the perfect balance of fun and functional. They come in three sizes, with two frame finish options and three lamp shade fabric options.
Designer: MKV Design
Discus is a bold yet minimalist collection of suspensions, ceiling-mounted and applique fixtures. Different finish and accent colors deliver different looks, adding versatile sophistication to the collection. Perfect for swanky penthouse apartments, high-end restaurants or retail spaces, hotels, and more.
