Deniz Canpinar has taken over as the new CEO of Oblure. He most recently came from iGuzzini illuminazione as a technical salesperson and before that ÅF Lighting (now Light Bureau) as a consultant in lighting design.
- Deniz Canpinar has a great understanding and knowledge in the industry that makes him fit very well in this role at Oblure. He has been involved in establishing the company’s new strategy and I feel he is the right person for this post. Also as responsible for the sales, Deniz will strengthen Oblure’s position in the domestic market with his sharp wits and with a smile on his lips, says founder and Art director Markus Johansson.
Oblure puts a lot of work into its brand and the product development, where the studio and prototype workshop is located in Gothenburg.
- Which I think is very fun and exciting. I see great potential in further development of the company and to work with Markus. Oblure is based in Gothenburg, also where Im born and raised and that makes it extra special, says Deniz Canpinar
Oblure has the desire to make innovative products that can add something new to the field of lighting. With the company roots in the Scandinavian design tradition we love the simplistic, minimalistic, and functional – but we wanted something more.
Therefore, Oblure work with international designers with the aim to build a collection with a lot of character and innovative elements that surprise and intrigue the beholder.
Our vision is to curate the original, bold and beautiful.
- The pandemic has of course made us wary, but we think it is the right time to invest now. New exciting products await in the future where form, function and technology are in perfect harmony, concludes Deniz.
