  • Who was Harvey Guzzini?

    Harvey Guzzini is a name which has become synonymous with stylish mid century modern lighting design. And in fact it’s the name of a company rather than one designer. The Italian family firm was founded in 1959 and originally called Harvey Creazioni. It was made up of the six brothers of the Guzzini family - Raimondo, Giovanni, Virgilio, Giuseppe, Adolfo and Giannunzio. The brothers took the first part of their name from the 1950 film Harvey, not wanting to make one designer the star of the show. The firm went by various other iterations over the years, including Harvey Creazioni, Guzzini, iGuzzini, and Illuminazione Guzzini before settling on Harvey Guzzini.

    While the brothers may have lacked decisiveness when it came to their branding they more than made up for it with creative flair. At first the firm concentrated on producing copper plated decorative objects, but when all five brothers joined in 1963 the Guzzinis expanded their range to include pendant lighting, sconces, and floor lamps. The brothers soon hired architect and designer Luigi Massoni to handle their publicity which boosted the profile of the firm and their creations.

    By 1967 Guzzini were exhibiting in Paris at Domus: Formes Italiennes in the Galeries Lafayette under the name of Design House (DH), where the company featured Gio Ponti’s Media Lamp. They capitalised on this success by opening a retail outlet
    in central Milan called Harvey Guzzini-DH in 1969, placing the brand among some of Italy’s premium design houses.

    In 1976 the firm moved from copper-plated items to methacrylate plastic (acrylic) lighting. The company also tried their hand at furniture production, collaborating with Yugoslavian furniture producer Meblo.
