The story of Badari began in Florence in 1956, when the founder Marcello Badari set up his repair business of brass chandeliers, just before the great economic boom experienced by Italy after World War II. Badari understood that times were changing and new job opportunities were arising. He, therefore, started a new business, specialized in the production and reproduction of artistic chandeliers, which soon started to attract new clients, especially Americans, who were fascinated by the “Made in Italy”.
From Badari Marcello
to nowadays Badari
In 1983 our company changed its name from Badari Marcello to Badari Lighting. Guided by CEO Roberto Lari, the company begins to establish itself as a leader in the production of classic style lighting trough the creation of chandeliers and lanterns that were unique in elegance and luxury. Badari has now reached its third generation, the new CEO Patrizio Lari has expanded the production, creating and marketing not just illumination products but also chairs and luxury accessories with an elegant and classic line: 1956 and simplyfing the Badari brand. As part of a process of continuous evolution, in 2018 we expanded our range of products by introducing LIFE. Contemporary, with features inspired by nature, LIFE is characterized by clean and sinuous lines, which underline the inner elegance of handmade products.
Badari stands for excellence and attention to detail.
The art of Badari lies not only in knowing how to make an object but also in knowing how to carefully choose the materials that can be used to create something unique. Each passage gives relevance to the chosen materials, from bronze to crystal, up to the semiprecious stones that decorate our masterpieces with a timeless charm.
