Costanza is now twenty and becomes "Grande". Designed in 1986 by Paolo Rizzatto, it has run through different styles and eras without changing, always appropriate, up-to-date and elegant. To celebrate its enduring success, Luceplan is now introducing new proportions to convey its greatness. The same materials and the same technology are used, unmistakable signs of avant-garde design. Grande Costanza is poised between visibility and delicacy, adorning its surroundings with its simple yet stark stature. Its light is always pleasant, intense and homey, suitable for private and public interiors alike.

Luceplan was founded with the objective of creating and producing interior and exterior lighting and to enhance the quality of living. Energy saving is top priority. Embracing the environmental compatibility of their whole operation – from choice of materials to the manufacturing process, from product durability to product maintenance. If an object is to last, it needs to be beautiful as well as technologically sound. But a long-lasting product also offers better environmental compatibility and it outlives fashions. Formed in 1978, Luceplan’s history is marked by well-defined constant – experimentation, research and quality and by a philosophy focused on creating “beautiful items for the public at large”.

- Paolo Rizzatto , 2006
Paolo Rizzatto was born in 1941 in Milan, Italy, where he studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. In 1968 he opened his own studio and worked on lighting, architectural and interior design projects. In 1978 he founded Luceplan together with Riccardo Sarfatti. With the 265 Lamp collection, Rizzato’s work was recognized internationally.
This collection would be followed by the Berenice Table Lamps and the Titania Hanging Lamps, which are reminiscent of floating submarines (both created in collaboration with Alberto Meda and produced by Luceplan). The Costanza series of lighting represents his work at its best, ethereal and uncluttered.
Over the years Rizzatto has received many important national and international awards for design, including three Compasso d’oro Awards, 1981, 1989 and 1994. His creations are part of the permanent collections of museums such as the Wave Hill Museum Centre for Environmental Studies, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
