Made with love
“I leave you this tale made up of fleeting images, moments, and curiosity that guides our actions so that you can discover, page after page, that the dream has actually become reality.”
Decorative lighting made with love
At Karman every project and every single designer lamp is born from the love and passion of its creative staff. Thinking outside the box to give life to original designer lighting free from any stereotype is what guides Kaman every day in everything they create.
Emotional lighting: this is how we can define what Karman wants to create with its collections of decorative lamps completely made in Italy. Because every place, every room, and every context has the right atmosphere able to excite and amaze those who live there. A perfect union between the tradition of an artisan culture and innovative materials and shapes.
Thus every decorative lighting project for interiors or exteriors, for private or contract homes, every event, every catalog, every single day of Karman’s everyday life is an opportunity to tell a story, made of images and light.
Free to exist
Karman tells its story and does so by referring to the experiences of a number of “iconic” characters who have enthusiastically offered themselves as models for images of their existence.
A basic, categorical photographic story that has successfully captured the meeting with heterogeneous life experiences, not those of the epic or mythological type but rather those that are true, coherent and engaging.
The bathroom is becoming ever more the place dedicated to the self-care and well-being. Comfort and design are fundamental for a space that has been transformed from a pure domestic ambient to a room to enjoy.
That’s why, in the bathroom too, you have to create the right atmosphere, suitable at every moment of the day, as we spent much time in this room.
Free and spontaneous inspiration. It’s an internal tension moment.
Often, for the professional, the project is a great source of inspiration to realize something new.
Karman, with this special edition titled “Karman in the world”, wants to give the right inspiration, showing the projects where the Karman lamps found their proper place, their way to be.
Karman Home has been planned to welcome the guest who’d like to know the essence of this company.
You come in and feel like home. White and black pictures in the walls tell some staff’s stolen moments, objects of the past come back occasionally and underline to attachment to our things from past.
In this summer 2016 the t-shirts by Karman have been around the world!

“I leave you with this story, made up of fleeting images and moments in time, with that curiosity that motivates each of our gestures so that, page by page, you can discover that the dream is in fact true, tangible and sublimely concrete.” – Davide Diamantini, CEO Karman
Every catalogue tells a story. Every story displayed in a setting. A true journey into memory. Objects manufactured on purpose to create unique atmospheres. Conceived and designed from Karman creative staff and all made in Fossombrone. The cradle where the little owl was born, the bathing-hut where Massimo could complete his “needs” for lighting, the bath tub where Pluto enjoys peacefully his bath, all barber’s vintage pieces collected to recreate that beautiful atmosphere of an old barber shop leaving a mark in the youth of many of us.
This video is dedicated to the ones who love to tell little stories, who live lives of emotion, who are able to grab simplicity within full complexity and wish to seize beauty in it all. To those who begin the day with just one single thought in their heads, as well as to the ones who have an overabundance of thoughts and, every day, peer into the mirror and are still able to smile.
True to its philosophy of thinking out of the box, Karman strives to invent ever-new ways of telling stories. Such as its graphic novel starring Karmando, an investigator battling against the evil Ombra: a playful comic strip from a company that enjoys inventing new languages with sincerity and passion.
Karmando as main character of the comic is the front man marking out in a very ironical and daring way the main image of the company; “the beauty of lighting” as “bello” appears in his most suitable guise: a confused investigator, truly unconventional, getting along with a shady case committed by a very resentful “Shadow”.
