Italian lighting design in Austria. Since 1981.

In 1981 Fritz Eiber, who was 22 at the time, made the bold decision to start a company to bring Italian lighting design to Austria. The young entrepreneur initially ran a small specialist lighting store of only 100 m² in the centre of Wels, with a great deal of passion and motivation. His love of design and architecture was already reflected in the range in this period and he was soon selling unique lighting designs from all over Europe. Architects and planners were quickly won over by the success and continuous company growth of Molto Luce.
