Light / is the element we work and play with every day /

“Light is the element we work and play with every day. The play dimension is necessary to stimulate creativity, an essential ingredient in all our processes and which helps us to aspire to the best possible results.
There is no future without curiosity, there is no growth without paying attention to a changing world. lt is exciting to see people who stay with the company for many years and still enjoy doing their jobs. Despite the 90-year history we have an enthusiastic and curious attitude of those who increasingly want to experiment.”

We started in 1928. Since then we here at Targetti have never stopped designing and creating indoor and outdoor architectural light fixtures. For almost a century our products, which are synonymous with innovation, research and attention to detail have been lighting the most prestigious architectural and artistic works, creating extraordinary atmospheres and evoking real emotions.
Our appearance and identity today are the result of the experience and professionalism we have gained over time, which we want to share with our partners and the quality  of the environment we live in.


Our essential vocabulary / the words we cannot do without /

Every single one of our products has always epitomised the essence of who we are: essential and discrete shapes and excellent performance in recognizable designs that are within everyone’s reach. Beauty, functionality and simplicity.

Listening, welcoming stimulus, sharing knowledge and experience. Dialogue is a mind that is open to outside influences, continual exchanges of ideas with partners, multidisciplinary attention and a heart that is always ready to take on new challenges.

Three infinite concepts we are very fond of: progressing, evolving and changing. In a word innovation. The courage to lead the way with the passion and the amazed and curious perspective of someone who knows they still have a long way to go.

Intuition as our main purpose, as an awareness that makes it possible to glimpse a direction for the future, as a spark of genius that continues to make us pioneers in designing new models.

Is our raw material, an essential tool and the result of our work. It is an intangible and magical element that designs shapes and animates spaces. To us  its language is technical refinement, scientific precision as well as sentiments, atmospheres and the possibility to adorn every place with emotions.

Different countries, different teams, only one goal. Targetti people play the same game, share the same culture, speak the same language, the language of light.

Global presence and local networks: our partners can reach us easily. The solutions we provide are versatile and can meet the needs of designers from all corners of the world.


/ Open to influences /

We were founded for light. We know how to shape it, expand its boundaries and horizons, express it in unusual ways and make it interact with other elements and materials.

A - Targetti Light Art  Collection
The Targetti Light Art Collection was created with this idea in mind, to use light as a means of expression; light interpreted by the sensitivity of the artists. Targetti Light Art Collection is a collection of contemporary works of art, more than 40 “light pictures”, commissioned from young artists who are now among the most important on the international scene.

B - Targetti Hub
Places for dialogue and sharing there are three Targetti HUBs around the world: TH01 at the Headquarters in Florence, TH02 in Shanghai and TH03 in the heart of Paris. They express our ideas and values. They are the expression of our desire to meet our partners, lighting designers, architects and interior designers in a place that really represents us. One word is not sufficient to describe them: they are laboratories, showrooms, meeting and event locations and dynamic and evolving environments that are open to dialogue and discussion with our partners and customers.

/ The answer to every question /

Indoor lighting
A complete range of products for indoor lighting, constantly updated to provide architects, designers and lighting designers ideal solutions and tools that are capable of enhancing every architectural context. Light for retail environments, places of worship, museums, workplaces and the hospitality industry.

Outdoor lighting
The variety of solutions on offer makes Targetti the ideal partner for every urban lighting project: from the redevelopment of large public spaces to highlighting monuments, historical buildings and places of worship as well as modern office complexes. The architecture is always center stage.

Custom made lighting
Creating an ad hoc light fixture for a specific project is a challenge, a fundamental stimulus that feeds our creative energies. Despite the wide and extensive variety of products on offer it is not always simple to find a product that meets the many variables involved in a complex project.  We work alongside our partners, we share the journey in all project phases, we design custom made products and we help them to produce them. Our technical department studies solutions that adapt to space, design, colours and dimensions. Solutions that can be an integral part of an environment and meet ever-changing lighting needs.
