Filippo Cannata has been performing an intense activity of planning and research in the field of lighting for about 30 years. In the wake of a long and continuous collaboration with artists and great masters of design and architecture, he realized fine interventions and artistic installations in different cities among the most important of the world. His project, characterized by a strong emotional impact, obtained many awards and certificates of merit including the Edison Award of Merit, the Dedalus Award and the Prix Lumiville assigned by the city of Lyon (France). He participates in national and international architectural competitions and he is member of associations like PLDA, IES, AIDI, Academy of Light.
Cannata&Partners is a research laboratory that explores topics and contents related to light, its history, its evolution through technology and design, its manifestations in nature, its use in all professional and artistic fields. A constant reminder of colours and sceneries that only nature can produce, a high respect for the laws that govern the motion and changes of natural light, a great care for the context in which the work subject of intervention is placed, these are the key principles of the philosophy to which every single component of the study inspires. Light, half-light, shadow, even darkness become essential ingredients, their proper combination helps the observer to reach states of intense emotional involvement and contributes to the attainment of the highest purpose of every lighting design project that is the human welfare to be infused through the most complete and total satisfaction of the senses.
