Trendsetter for technology and design
For over 35 years now, serien.lighting has been a trendsetter and innovator in the field of outstanding luminaires – in terms of design, technology and production. Back in 1983, Jean-Marc da Costa and Manfred Wolf founded their company while still design students with the aim of combining sophisticated series-made products with new technologies and contemporary aesthetics. Designs such as REFLEX and the SML product line swiftly became favorites for architects, developers and creative professionals looking for intelligent lighting solutions with a reduced Modernist formal vocabulary for their projects. Today, the two lines number among the company’s classic luminaires. serien.lighting has continually expanded its range and today offers the entire spectrum of luminaires for discerning architectural projects. Cutting-edge LED technology, numerous control options, and optimum light values coupled with high efficiency combine to form the basis for luminaires with sophisticated lighting effects.
Products by creative professionals for creative professionals
Experimenting with new designs and lighting solutions, something in the DNA of both the managing directors, has become the trademark of serien.lighting. Time and again they optimize their successful classics and adapt them to new technological requirements and changed uses. And serien.lighting is also often fine-tuning new concepts for previously neglected areas of application. For example, ANNEX, the popular ceiling luminaire, is an innovative lighting solution for a central ceiling connection with the pleasant, glare-free lighting mood of a downlight.
The essence of serien.lighting is best summed up in the courage to find new solutions in the search for contemporary forms of light. Communicating with dealers, suppliers, planners, developers and architects is of central importance to the manufacturer in order to identify new market requirements as they emerge. As such, cooperation in the spirit of joint and equal partnership results in products made by creative professionals for creative professionals – from the adjusted standard luminaire to the semi-custom product to the fully customized solution.
Lighting solutions arising from dialog
In cooperation with architects, developers or lighting planners serien.lighting has always developed individualized products for special construction projects. These include custom-made objects for bank foyers, libraries, restaurants, retail outlets, hotels, museums and religious buildings. With its special understanding of technology, construction and design, the company has become the ideal partner for individual solutions for ambitious projects. As such, it is particularly important to serien.lighting to enter into dialog with its partners from the fields of architecture and lighting planning, to combine the various skills and to find new, individual lighting solutions together. The company has repositioned itself in this sector in recent years. Now, a highly capable development department visualizes design ideas using 3D design software and rapid prototyping. This method enables ideas about coherent shapes in keeping with the project to be brought very quickly into line with the technical realization.
