A lamp or lighting fixture for us is first and foremost a functional product. “Licht machen”, to make light, is our first responsibility. Once this function is fulfilled, a beautiful form will follow, made with precious materials and dedicated workmanship. The result is perfect lighting for your home or business, accommodating and enhancing all environments, from traditional to contemporary. To clad the function of “licht machen” into a beautiful form has been taught to us by the bauhaus school of Germany and our founder Franz Holtkoetter. Since he founded the company in 1964, we have produced lighting machines using manufacturing methods that are steeped in the German Handwerkstradition—craft tradition.
