Meet the designers
Cerno, established in 2009, is an industrial design and manufacturing company innovating modern LED lighting fixtures and furniture in Southern California. Our mission is to fuse quality, performance and resource efficiency with modern design. At Cerno it is our intention to design with focus and purpose, yielding products that blend form and function into objects of purposeful and personal value. We believe that the often overlooked objects we surround ourselves with in our daily lives represent an opportunity for expression and personal enjoyment. We aim to produce products that take advantage of this opportunity and fill this need for the conscientious consumer.
Now, for over a decade, we’ve been making modern fixtures. In 2009 we 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 we set out to design and build original fixtures right here in California.
“When we first started, we didn’t know what the market was going to demand. But we get feedback from lighting designers, architects and users, and we build the next generation based on that feedback,” “When we’re not working, we’re always trying to get back in the water,”
