Nemo’s path is strictly linked to the history of the Italian Design of the last twenty years. Nemo was founded in 1993 by Franco Cassina, owner of Cassina S.p.A. and by Carlo Forcolini, that felt the need of a project based on innovation, rooting in the tradition that inspired the Italian design.
Thanks to various products that became icons of the Italian design, Nemo has gained a leading position in the lighting design world.
In 2006, Nemo was acquired by the Poltrona Frau Group and continues its International development, towards investments in innovation and experimentation of new materials and technology.
In December 2012, Omikron Design S.r.l., a Milanese company of architectural lighting, managed by Federico Palazzari, acquires the majority of Nemo. The Poltrona Frau Group remains an important and key partner.  www.nemolighting.com
