Glimpse behind the scenes of idee.design.licht.
  • Technical know-how and design expertise from a single source
  • Light solutions for public and private buildings
  • Everything under one roof: from first draft, over construction, metalworking and assembly up to shipping

Limbach-Oberfrohna, June 7, 2010 - idee.design.licht.GmbH (idl) develops, manufactures and distributes sophisticated lighting-fixtures and systems for offices and objects as well as private environments. The German lighting manufactory enjoys an excellent reputation among architects, planners, designers and the trade for it’s ability to realise individual lighting solutions, one-offs and customer designs in short time, with outstanding lighting quality and technical precision. Award-winning design, among others honoured with the iF-Award and the state design price of the Federal Republic of Germany, underlines the unique design expertise of idee.design.licht. Consequently also the number of private customers demanding light systems manufactured by idee.desing.light. is constantly growing.

One of the key assets of the 32-strong team of idee.design.licht. is the flexiblity to create special light solutions quickly, precisely and with outstanding technical quality. On customer request, all products within 70 standard light families can be modified in form, colour and technical features. Also completely new designs can be realised within short time. This is why idee.design.licht. positions itself as an congenial partner of architects, designers, planning offices and developers – often even teaming up at the very early stages of the design process to develop integrated light solutions, in a creatively and technically sophisticated manner.

Based on state-of-the-art 3D programmes the lighting effect of single lighting fixtures and light systems can be simulated; a team of creative specialists works by hand and with the help of CNC-controlled machines to create models, individual items, small and big batch productions precisely according to customer request. The team of experienced engineers and specialised manufacturers is complemented by an in-house illustrator, who supports creative brainstormings and project meetings by visualising verbal descriptions and ideas in “real time” by drafting them on paper.

One of the most recent example of the collaboration with planning offices and architects was the modernisation of leading German boarding school “Schloss Salem” (architect Burkhardt Überlingen), the Schüco Technology Center in Bielefeld (co-operation with Ulrike Brandi Licht) and also the new building of the Clinical Centre in Chemnitz (architect Peter Koch), where the lightning concept did not only complement the architecture as a mere “add-on”, but was integrated as a key design element right from the outset.

Series lights from the main catalogue are manufactured individually right after order entry. The highly qualified staff of idee.design.licht. produces almost all products completely under a single roof - from the very first design sketches, over the construction, metalworking and assembly up to packing and shipping.

Since October 2008 Kathrin Dobiéy (34) is responsible for sales and marketing. A nationwide network of free sales agents represents idee.design.licht. towards retailers and keeps on good terms with planning offices, architects and home-builders.
