Incredibly light and easy to assemble, Hope represents the magic of traditional lamps, reinterpreting them with sophisticated technologies and contemporary materials.
A series of thin polycarbonate Fresnel lenses, created using imprinted microprisms on polycarbonate film to achieve a dioptric effect similar to glass (without any limitations in terms of space, thickness and weight), multiply the light from the light source, recreating a pleasant, glittery and party-like atmosphere, sprinkled with thousands of shards of light like the diamond which inspired the name: Hope. Hope – the fruit of a brilliant project and manufacturing process – has been designed for use with any type of light source.

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”.
Luceplan Hope Ceiling Lamp Designed by:
- Francisco Gomez Paz
- Paolo Rizzatto
Francisco Gomez PazBorn in Salta, Argentina in 1975. After obtaining the Industrial Design degree at the Universidad Nacional de Cordoba Francisco Gomez Paz moved to Milan in 1998 where he attended the Master in Design at Domus Academy. Since opening his design office in Milan in 2004 he has developed products for leading design companies such as Artemide, Driade, Danese, Lensvelt, Luceplan, Olivetti and Sector among others. Francisco’s approach to design is driven by his own curiosity, the knowledge of technology and materials and a highly experimental hands-on creative process. His work has received several international recognitions such as the Good Design Award 2010 and the Red Dot Award 2010; he has been honoured together with Alberto Meda with the First Prize of the Index Award for the Solar Bottle, which has also been selected for the MOMA’s Study Collection and recently he received the Prize of Prizes to Innovation in Design from Italy’s president Giorgio Napolitano for the Hope chandelier and the prestigious Compasso d’Oro 2011. He is active in the fields of research and education, he is visiting professor at Domus Academy from 2000 and has held lectures in Italy and abroad. His projects have been exhibited in several international events and published by main design publications.
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.
