Davide Oppizzi, Swiss/Italian Designer, COE & FOUNDER of DCUBE.SWISS

"Light is Matter, Matter is Light »
Two polarities that are the designer's favourite playground, totally integrated in his biodiversity values.
Visionary, anticipatory and versatile, his field of creative action ranges from architectural lighting planning to lighting design, from furniture to the world of baths to the world of luxury.  
The biggest international brands such as Artemide, Audemars Piguet, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Graff, Fiam, LG, Linealight, or Designheure have commissioned him to create projects that reflect the deep link between the human being and the nature that surrounds him, the nature that constantly nourishes his inspirations. Davide Oppizzi, born of a Swiss father and an Italian mother, has been the founder and designer of DCUBE SWISS for 21 years now. His company DCUBE.SWISS is specialised in interior design and high-end architectural lighting, while Davide Oppizzi signs design collections each year. His style and philosophy, applied to design and lighting projects, draws its creativity from current themes that are meaningful, by merging subjects that are at first sight distant but which, once linked, reveal their uniqueness. Always at the service of people, his creations integrate innovative technological materials with a minimal ecological footprint and a subtle and elegant aesthetic. Often inspired by nature, Davide Oppizzi's mission is to transmit his vision and creative sensitivity to his students and to the industrial world, always putting man evolution and ecosystem at the centre of his concerns.

To transmit a passion

Since 2007, DCUBE has been called upon to lead workshops on the theme of lighting, the ecological concept of products and commercial space at the Haute École d’Art et de Design (HEAD) and at the École Supérieure de Visual Merchandising Design (ESVM).


DCUBE’s unusual artistic approach and thorough knowledge of the latest technologies applicable to lighting and design makes it the agency of choice for the needs of international clients who wish to set themselves apart. Drawing on various transversal disciplines such as lighting, design, greentech and architecture, DCUBE perfectly translates the needs and requirements of its clients, even going beyond their expectations. With its intimate and emotional approach, DCUBE breathes a futuristic vision into its projects, a unique style and refined elegance that includes both the aspects linked to sustainable development and performance.


At DCUBE, the creative act proceeds from a unique and futurist consideration, an exclusive and totally visionary savoir-faire. Each project begins with freehand research drawings. These drawings reveal the beginnings of the subject’s theme, its forms, ergonomics, requirements, productivity and the emotional feeling for its volumes. The constraint is an excellent stimulator of creativity that pushes the creator to constantly surpass himself.

Once the broad lines have been decided and the character established, a 3D modelling tool visualises the interaction between the shapes and volumes of the project, design or architecture. High precision modelling that gives way to the addition of textures and lights to enable photo-realistic images to provide the client with the best possible perception of the order’s reality.

In the final stage, the creator DCUBE produces detailed working drawings, using aesthetic and technical dimensioning which will then be submitted to the manufacturer for the production phase.


“Only light can reveal matter.” Convinced of the influence of light on humans, objects and spaces, as well as their yin-yang complementarity, DCUBE has specialised in light engineering. It provides its clients with complete lighting studies for all the projects destined to bring their products to prominence. DCUBE demonstrates unique mastery of all the essential parameters for a lighting project: concept, aesthetics, technology, installation and sales. At DCUBE, the consideration of how a space should be lit is primarily an emotional vision, anterior to the technicalities. The expertise in light engineering that accompanies this creative vision makes DCUBE a novel company with the capacity to fulfill all the requirements of a demanding international clientele.
