Founded in 1993 by Franco Cassina and Carlo Forcolini, Nemo Lighting works in close collaboration with internationally renowned architects such as Foster + Partners, Jens + Laub, Hannes Wettstein, Vico Magistretti and Karim Rashid. The Nemo collection includes luminaires for both the residential and commercial markets. Nemo carefully selects lighting sources, paying particular attention to fluorescent lamps and to the experimentation and application of LEDs of the latest generation. All such solutions grant top performance with low energy consumption. Nemo merged with its parent company Cassina SpA in 2008 but de-merged in 2013 after a majority share was bought by Omikrom Design.
