VISO was established in the late 90's when designer / entrepreneur Filipe Lisboa of Portugal undertook an unconventional approach to lighting design. His unique take on 60's and 70's-inspired designs was an instant standout among his peers. VISO's collections reflect a sophisticated elegance and cutting edge style earning unprecedented success in the European market. The International Lighting Fair in 2002 in Valencia, Spain, proved to be a pivotal point in establishing VISO as a talent to watch. VISO was awarded the top 3 accolades for unique lighting design. Shortly thereafter, VISO quickly gained critical favour and attention among leading interior designers, architects and private clients who recognized a rare commitment to design, efficiency, functionality and exceptional attention to customer service.
