From its humble beginnings in Kanda, Tokyo in 1930, when Tsunesaburo Sugasawara worked by an oil lamp creating products to solve furniture design challenges, Sugatsune continues to create hardware solutions that are based on our core value of being original.
“INSPIRE & INVENT”
The name Sugatsune and LAMP brand products have long been associated with Quality, Innovation, and Service. Sugatsune America, Inc., was established in 1982 to Inspire architects, designers and industrial engineers in North America to Invent new solutions, equipped with a comprehensive collection of thousands of precision-engineered hardware.
