Jane and Phillip La Forgia started their lighting import business in the early 1990s and after three years selling several smaller brands, the pair negotiated to become the exclusive Australian distributor of the high end lighting designer and manufacturer, Artemide.
Originating in Italy in 1960, the Artemide brand is renowned for its design innovation in both commercial and residential lighting and appeals to consumers with chic taste. Operating in 83 countries globally, the products are manufactured in Italy and have won numerous design awards.
Philip and Jane now operate with their son in law Edward Scalzi and daughter Emilia La Forgia (Melbourne) and are one of only a handful of privately owned Artemide distributors globally. The family team has been a fabulous ambassador for the iconic brand over the last twenty years and due to the continued success of their business, they now also have showrooms in Melbourne and Sydney and agents in Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.
Kartell was originally founded by a chemist named Giulio Castelli who had quite a flare for furniture design. Guilio pioneered the manufacture of luxury plastic furniture, being the first to mould and produce single piece designs. Kartell now operates in 130 countries and is a producer of luxurious yet wonderfully functional furniture, furnishings and home accessories.
Louisa and Edward Scalzi opened the Adelaide distributorship of this exclusive furniture brand two years ago. Aptly placed on the Parade, Norwood, their beautiful showroom showcases the Kartell brand and services primarily retail customers. The business also offers project specific solutions for restaurants and cafes and, most notably, the business has recently fulfilled a large order for the Art Gallery of South Australia.
With plans to open further showrooms in the eastern states and being run by the same family that has built the Artemide name in Australia, this business shows a very bright future.
