Senior Product Development Specialist

About us

Giopato & Coombes designs and produces iconic, contemporary lighting sculptures.
The company founded by Cristiana Giopato and Christopher Coombes began as a design studio researching into the power of light, and its ability to evoke moments, memories, and emotions.
To make this happen the studio has expanded to oversee local production around the Venice region, where the importance of human connections rings true, as world-class craftsmanship intertwines with cutting-edge LED technology.
Giopato & Coombes works with a few selected dealers/galleries and receives commissions directly from luxury brands and notable interior designers from around the world to create made-to-measure installations.
