Nobody does glass lighting fixtures better than Besa Lighting. Working with American designers and European craftsmen, the company merges old world techniques with avant-garde innovation, resulting in unprecedented quality. Besa Lighting offers a compelling assortment with a commitment to meeting the demands of residential and commercial applications.
With unique yet functional designs that deliver innovative looks, Besa combines European glass artisanship with sensibly contemporary styling. In doing so, Besa has carved out a niche in the lighting industry as a customer design manufacturer, utilizing its strengths in domestic sourcing, in-house assembly, labeling and component based inventory. Component based production allows the lighting buyer to pick options that match a specific need, which means each fixture can be assembled to order in the United States. That, of course, helps Besa maintain a level of quality that can't be duplicated with a "box-in, box-out approach" that many lighting manufacturers rely on.
Some of Besa Lighting's most popular designs can be found in the Costaluz collection. Costaluz was developed to meet the harsh environments of coastal outdoor areas, while still providing elegance at an affordable price. Costaluz accomplishes this by using decorated glass diffusers, hand-painted by European craftsmen, then firing those pieces to assure a durable and lasting finish.
One of the individual designs that turns heads is the "Pogo," a playful pendant with an opal glass in the center of a stunning metal foil-lined glass ring. "Brio" is another favorite with its handcrafted glass softly contoured to fit gracefully into contemporary spaces. When illuminated the inner foil glows and the bottom clear glass sparkles.
It all comes back to the glass. Some of Besa's glass techniques date back 3,000 years. This allows the small-town Ohio company to compete with the major lighting brands and exceed the expectations of those who invest in its lighting designs.
