Thinking all round
Creative designs for Plug & Light by Insta: Six new partner companies are moving the system forward, opting for flexible light fittings and new possible applications.
Tobias Link lighting design studio has been in business since 1991. We, Tobias and Oliver Link, are the faces behind it. With every new project we rely on what sets a good lighting designer apart – our many years of experience in the profession.
We plan carefully to budget in line with the scale of building and with energy efficiency in mind, as we always keep up with new developments in technology. Thus the architect also benefits from our comprehensive, in-depth knowledge, which is also something that sets us apart from other specialist planners.
We develop customised solutions and bespoke lighting, while keeping the design within the limits of the given budget. We are familiar with the production process and can control it ourselves: this reduces costs and is often cheaper than using products from a catalogue, especially when large-scale projects are concerned. Assignments like this frequently result in series products. We request proposals for provision of testing services for each of our new products. An accredited German institute, as an independent assessor, checks on our behalf whether the lighting fixture or lighting system designed by us operates efficiently and meets requirements as expected We design and supply detailed planning guidance in 3D so that our final proposal is visualised in order to provide greater granularity.
Our work processes are transparent in accordance with the German HOAI (Official Scale of Fees for Services by Architects and Engineers) and we cover all individual aspects, from the initial evaluation through to site supervision. Our in-depth understanding of art and architecture is what enables us to be discerning in our work with shades of colours, along with designing lighting with general light (white light) and natural light.
