SAY. DARE. LIGHT UP. Lumere in a nutshell

SAY – Rooting up a passion

A life full of thrills and emotions. These are Ferdinando Ingenito’s origins, who began in Florence as a school teacher and then quickly became an export manager for lighting companies. For 45 years he has followed his passion for lighting projects.This love led him to found his first company MITO in 1980, when, as a talent scout, Ferdinando Ingenito selected young architects and designers who would later become real talents from the likes of Ferruccio Laviani such, Gordon Guillaumier, Vera Fraboni, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Terry Pecora, Enzo Berti. Many years later, after a period spent in the USA, Ferdinando Ingenito established a new lighting company, FILED, whose name recalls the new era of LED. As the final destination of his long journey, in 2023 he begins a new adventure by creating LUMERE, alongside his son Luca.

Different projects, different materials: turned wood, metal, glass or natural stone: each one expresses a perfect balance between the design and the manufacturing. The assembly work is realized in the LUMERE main factory, where the technological concept is deeply analyzed and produced. The strength of every project carried out by Ferdinando Ingenito is his deep knowledge of the engineering applied to lighting fixtures.

Ferdinando Ingenito, joined by his son Luca and Daniele Della Porta, is planning a new collection of rechargeable lamps, focusing, this time, on larger outdoor models. A new brand has begun its long journey, but it is only in its first steps.
