With PostKrisi Enzo Catellani began working and moulding fibreglass. This material fascinated him due to its incredible versatility and strength, but above all for the shadows it casts when it interacts with light.
Born in 1950, Enzo Catellani lives in Bergamo. During the 1980s, he began the limited-series production of lamps made to his designs, for sale through his own shop.
In 1989, the lamps attracted the attention of Düsseldorf-based distributors Renate and Peter Meese, who presented them at the Ambiente expo in Frankfurt, where they were rapturously received.
In the same year, he set up the Catellani & Smith company, which – thanks to a combination of creativity and determination, and the input of an excellent team – led to prestigious successes both in Europe and around the world.
The uniqueness of the company's production system and the particular nature of their facilities have made Castellani & Smith a favourite of specialist journals and international clients.
Castellani has been featured in numerous periodicals around the world. In short, he has invented a new working style that reflects his specific skills.
