Any lighting solution starts out with a vision.

Light is a medium that – unlike any other – can be used to materialise the spatial qualities of architecture.

We understand light as an integral part of architecture where the effect of lighting is more important than lighting fixture design. Hence, we try to realise our projects with the fewest possible elements and to keep lighting fixtures out of sight wherever possible.

Where necessary we have developed products that have been adapted to the specific site requirements. A great emphasis is put on detail, its design and execution on site. The combination of functionality, energy efficiency, aesthetics and architecturally integrated light guidance is always the ultimate ambition in our planning process.

Quotation

"With our design approach, we are fully committed to the architecture and the architect’s design intentions. Nor do we in any way want to impose our signature on the architecture though our lighting design.

On the contrary, we strive to produce an appropriate lighting concept in keeping with the functional and design aspects of the architecture and to implement this concept as an integral architectural element in close collaboration with the architect and systematic discussion with other consultants."
