THE FIRST LIGHT Now, for almost a decade Cerno has been making modern fixtures. In 2009 they saw an opportunity. Lighting design and energy efficiency had been limited by 100 years of the traditional incandescent bulb. Fixtures designed in America but manufactured overseas often had frustrating quality flaws and were limited by the inherent disconnect in their design-prototyping-manufacturing process. The innovations in incandescent and LED lighting, new technologies started bringing potential for efficiency, quality and beauty that had yet to be thoroughly explored or developed. So they set out to design and build original fixtures in California.
WHAT CERNO DOES TODAY Cerno designs and build lighting in California with the finest craftsmanship and authentic materials. Their aesthetic is an intersection of modernism and contemporary design. In addition to Cerno’s line of modern lighting, Cerno has an art lighting brand that is currently making the most sophisticated picture light on the market.
