Wood touched by Light
LZF - Wood Touched by Light
LZF, formerly known as Luzifer lamps, is a lighting design company that has manufactured handmade wood veneer lamps since 1994, under the creative direction of Marivi Calvo and Sandro Tothill.
From their humble beginnings, providing personalized gifts for friends and family on special occasions, LZF has grown into a company that is current, relevant and has something to say.
Their ability to create lighting sensations has carried them from one success to the next, as they continually challenge convention with their fresh and original ideas.
Lighting design, LZF believes, is an important and under appreciated element of good design. Renowned architect Louis Kahn once said “A room is not a room without natural light”. LZF embraces this principle by designing innovative lighting whose core elements are natural forms and materials.
LZF´s unmatched ability to create natural forms from wood which play with light, forming emotive relationships with the viewer and with the spaces they occupy, is one of the main reasons that LZF lamps are now found in a multitude of environments around the world. They are used for restaurant lighting, bar lights, hotel lighting and office lighting, as well as in libraries, hospitals and private homes.
Because of the broad array of environments in which LZF lamps can be installed, various mounting options are available. These include floor lamps, suspension lamps, table lamps and wall lamp mounting styles.
LZF lights are a sensation for the eyes, accentuating the natural grain of wood and showcasing an artisan approach to good design. Each lamp is handmade in Valencia, Spain, resulting in each individual fixture being completely unique.
LZF are passionate about what they do and delight in the joy that their lighting installations bring to the public. LZF has developed a distinctive signature style which transcends mere product design and can be described as a life philosophy.

Mandarin Oriental Bodrum
The constellation of LZF lamp’s Poppy and Pod models, create a floating ceiling of wood veneer lighting above the bar that oozes a soft glow and showers it down on the bar staff who work pleasantly below. What more spectacular kind of setting could you ask for?
The Kitchen Island
This 14 foot kitchen island which happened to be part of a swanky redevelopment LZF was proud to be a part of, was designed for a family of 2 adults, three kids and the same number of pooches. Combined with their passion for entertaining, the homeowners were desperate to overhaul their inadequately-sized kitchen.

The Pamplona Bull Run, Semana Santa, Tomatina Tomato Fight, Las Fallas…all great Spanish festivals. But nothing compares with the excitement around the launch of the new LZF 2014 catalogue.
We’ve scoured all of Spain for the sexiest locations to show off our wares; from the 2000-year-old Caro Hotel in Valenica, to the enchanting Casa en l’Empordà, in Girona.
We even crafted a versatile wooden box in our factory at Chiva, to create the perfect ambience in which to shoot our lamps. Now that’s dedication.
Our co-founders Marivi & Sandro hope the catalogue shines an inspirational light on how the lamps can be used in a variety of design environments; from rustic chic, to white-box minimalist. “It was a big, big job, but it was worth it,”.
