Leonardo Marelli, history of a name

Leonardo Marelli, EStiluz

During the 80s, Estiluz obtained significant growth thanks to the success of our neoclassical product. We consolidated our presence in the domestic market and began to expand throughout Europe. Then, just like now, the consumer assessed the quality, durability and aesthetic qualities of the product. Thanks to the large amount of light emitted ESTILUZ luminaires by the innovative halogen bulbs, which pioneered ESTILUZ to have  great success in the Spanish market.

Our name did not come from the 1990s, it came from the 1980s. What I want to say is that my father was the only designer up to the 1990s.

At that time, it lacked prestigious Spanish designers, Gerard Masdeu, creator and designer of the company, saw the need to project an international image by taking advantage of the popularity of Italian designers in vogue at that time. Along with proven product quality, "Leonardo Marelli" contributed decisively to the international expansion of our company.

But who is Leonardo Marelli?

Leonardo Marelli is the stage name of the only designer of ESTILUZ until the late 1990s. None other than Gerard Masdeu, founder and main promoter of the company, who turned the garage of his father into a lighting company renowned international presence.

The stage name was born in Milan, during one of the fairs called the Euroluce fair, when our founder was travelling on the Red Line subway in the city. When he chose the name he was between the stations Sesto Marelli and S. Leonardo, and these names have been associated with us for over 40 years now.
