Rocco Borghese combines an instinctive Italian understanding of style and design with the skill and passion of an artisan. Born in Southern Italy Rocco began his career working with his father in their family-run studio and workshop.
The Borghese furnace, as it was known, became synonymous in the local region and amongst its clients for its excellent and individual glass work.
In his twenties, with an ambition to start his own glass blowing business, Rocco travelled to London to study architecture with interior design. Following his graduation Rocco began his first lighting business creating custom made lights using neon. After many years he began working exclusively in Murano glass, moving away from more commercial projects in favour of developing his features as art pieces.
Rocco eventually opened Borghese Luce Arte in north Londons Crouch End area, a shop-studio within which to create his unique art-light pieces. Since opening, Roccos's work has established a growing following amongst interior designers, architects, and his client base includes many well known names. His lighting features have been featured on Channel 4 Grand Designs and are sold through top leading stores throughout the world.
