Marset is a Spanish lighting company which was established in 1942 as a metal foundry, before concentrating on illumination in 1965. A long experience with molding metal gave the company a strong base for experimenting with different lamp designs, and over the years, Marset has become famous for its interesting and unique lighting effects.
Today, Marset aims to discover new nuances of light and create atmospheric and timeless designs with modern techniques. One of the best known designs of the brand is the FollowMe lamp, which won the Red Dot Award in 2016.
