VENETIAN SMART LIGHTING AWARD 2023
Vitreo by Andcosta wins the VENETIAN SMART LIGHTING AWARD for the CONTRACT category
The genesis of the Vitreo product comes to life from the creation of a scenographic installation created ad hoc for the headquarters of a well-known denim company (entirely illuminated by Andcosta – a building designed by architects SAI Schleburg Generalplanungs GmbH.
To accompany customers from one floor to another a large spiral staircase is illuminated by a 12-meters “glass waterfall”, a luminous system of interconnected modules where the glass of the enormous chandelier intersects an atmospheric light and reflects chromatic effects.
Vitreo is inspired by the naturalness of organic shapes. The design focus was to place on the market a lamp steeped in its essence, where the pure beauty of the glass and the light source could intersect chromatic games. The hand-crafted transparent glass illuminates the night and is almost invisible during the day, leaving room for the particular internal finish where the natural pigments become the very signature of the object.
Andcosta lights up in color and narrates small tales of its territory starting from the lagoon of Venice where until November it will be present at the
Biennale of Architecture
Grenada National Pavilion
The new colors collection will reflect the shades of the waters that bathe Venice, the island of Murano and the lagoon architecture.
Green, yellow, blue, venetian red and gold finish are the leitmotif of a narrative inspired by
the color palette of an immortal and timeless city.
Follow the path and you will soon discover our
brand new colored collection!

We are glad to be part of it!
Andcosta at Euroluce – Milano Design Week 2023 18-23 . 04. 2023 Hall 15 Stand 121
Andcosta presents its new collection at Euroluce, Milano Design Week 2023. The stand encapsulates the company’s technical expertise, the defining element of the new products, which arise out of the intuition and imagination of the Andcosta design team and founder Carlo Zerbaro.
The space of the stand showcase innovations of a professional and architectural nature, in the refreshed looks of iconic products such as Circus, Circus Acoustic Panel, Luna, Grue, Pin and in the new product families such as Vitreo, B-Pro modular System and the New series of Acoustic Panels that can be combined with lighting systems.
Proud to annunce that Spot-On Lighting System has been awarded!
Spot-On Lighting System design by Irene Kronenberg of Baranowitz + Kronenberg and engineering and manufacturing by AndCosta has been awarded the 2022 Prize Designs for Modern Furniture and Lighting Award from Global Design News and The Chicago Athenaeum
Lighting plays a fundamental role in architecture.
In harmony with the project carried out by SAI Schleburg Generalplanungs GmbH, ANDCOSTA designed and realized more than 100 Luna hanging lamp in different sizes and in a special direct light version.
The fascinating noise-absorbing membrane is covered on the upper side by an ALUCOBOND® surface. The membrane of Luna, in addition to returning a particulary suggestive light helps to muffle the noise.
We chose this material for its reflectance capabilities. The ALUCOBOND® panel bounces the light without absorbing it, thus increasing the light beam, the very low UGR value ensure maximum comfort in this case at the workplace.
Focus on our news!
