This is the story of a family: the Granchi family, one of those Italian families that in the economic fabric of Italy constitute the “vital hub” of companies that are born from the love for the product they create. It all started in the ’60s with a very small company. Paolo and Gianna, husband and wife, founded SIGMA L2 that with care and craftsmanship started to produce lights, vases, objects and furnishings in ceramics. The sons of Paolo and Gianna had to enter the company very young, in 1993, after the premature death of their father, they continued the path of stylistic research that he set forth. They grew professionally under the guidance of their mother and, with time, lead the company to open to new developments, making it increasingly eclectic, dynamic and exclusive, while preserving the cultural peculiarity of the artisan manufacture. Distinguished by the small Crab that has become a symbol of the brand, they introduced innovative processes, resulting in new and daring combinations of materials. Ceramic is now mixed with brass and iron, glass and crystal, wood and marble, hard stones and leather.
