25 years of serien.lighting
It was quite a courageous step that Manfred Wolf and Jean-Marc da Costa founded their company in 1985. Would their straightforward architectural solutions survive? Would clients even acknowledge the design focus and quality finishing? 25 years on and serien.lighting is a firm fixture in the world of technically discerning luminaires with a quality design. Many of the companys products have been new stimuli for the market, such as the SML minimalist luminaire program, Zoom, which adapts by concertina movement, or more recent designs such as Annex, a compelling shape and lighting solution for a central ceiling mounting in rooms that are not very high.
We do not want to sell modern illuminated geese, says MD Manfred Wolf. We do not primarily focus on luminaires, but on lighting. Thus, developing a luminaire may take several years, with the designers working away at the shape until the perfect lighting effect is found, until a truly independent, contemporary form and a refi ned technical structure have been devised that simply cannot be advanced further or changed. Many results of this intensive exploration have emerged as classics, and have won dozens of design prizes.
Today, serien.lighting luminaires are to be found the world over in companies, bars, and private residences. The line includes both restrained shapes and striking standalones. They all share refi ned technology, carefully-considered shapes, and precisely designed lighting effects values that will continue in the future to ensure that the companys products are more than mere sources of light. The serien.lighting luminaires are now, 25 years on, still design solutions that. Parallel to the Light+Building trade fair in Frankfurt/Main serien.lighting celebrated its 25th anniversary in April 2010 with an exhibition and other jubilee events.
